“From My Dreams To Yours.

Continuing the Strange Dreams series (Previously), these little gouache paintings are based on dream-like visuals that are meant to share emotional content. These little experiments started at a time when some disturbing things were going on in the world. Although it was not conscious or deliberate, those events seemed to find their way into this series. I have always been fascinated with dark dream-visuals that sometimes seep into your subconscious, and in this series of paintings, I tried to put those strange dreams down on paper.

All of the paintings are all done in gouache on watercolor paper. The series at first had some finishing touches in photoshop but have been moving toward solely traditional mediums. They’re an ongoing experiment with medium and composition and the potent nature of dreams. I think there are no deep dark hidden secrets. It’s just fun to play with the emotions art can generate. I believe color is really emotion. Color choices are made to reinforce those emotions. To me there’s a sense of poetry in the playful use of surreal elements.” Bill Mayer
