Like Living Within a Dream

Surrealist paintings, focused on the abnormalities and strangeness of dreams. Lucid dreams transformed to paintings. Expanding on the unconscious mind with image juxtaposition and other oddities.

OOPS!, Mia Wen-Hsuan LIU, 2012, From the collection of: Fubon Art Foundation
"OOPS!" by Mia Wen-Hsuan Lia is such a great and surreal piece. Paper is given the role of organized chaos and achieves a spatial juxtaposition as a result. It makes me feel as if time was stopped.
Instant Landscape-garden #3, Kim, Nampyo, 2010, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
"Instant Landscape-garden #3" is a peculiar piece to make the eyes wander. It features shallow water with vases blooming strange objects and animals. To the right is oversized photo of a horse.
Meditation, Pablo Harymbat, Gualicho, 2013 - 2013, From the collection of: Artmossphere Studio
"Meditation" is an interesting piece of a floating mountainous abode with humanlike characteristics. Thought bubbles protrude from windows with human body parts in them. I chose this piece because of its contrast with its surroundings.
Rock and Rose Bed (The Bed You Make is the Bed You Lie In), Judy Darragh, 1989 - 1996, From the collection of: Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki
This piece is cleverly crafted as a bed of rocks and a bed of roses, each with the opposite plaque hanging over the bed. Almost representing a yin-yang’s balance. It’s surreal to see such irony put into a concrete form.
Instant Landscape- machine #5, Kim, Nampyo, 2010, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
This piece carries a seemingly oversized red sports car with flowers growing out of the fenders. A waterfall proceeds to pour over the door and down to the ocean’s edge below. Zebra heads stand up on both front fenders. I chose this piece because of the juxtaposition within.
The Moor's Ear, Wolfgang Lettl, 1987, From the collection of: Lettl Collection
The Moor’s Ear is made to appear as a frame with a painting inside. The painting features a large red ball resting atop four trees as well as a horse-like head being carried by four pairs of human legs. A ear sits alone within the frame creating a contrast between the painting and painted frame.

Good Stones and Bad Stones, Wolfgang Lettl, 1946, From the collection of: Lettl Collection
“Good Stones and Bad Stones” features a bad stone held within a jail-like structure, though not entirely whole. There are some good stones floating about above the water with one actually wearing a mask. The personifications of the stones simulate dreamlike qualities.
