Waken in a Dream

Mixed Media, November 2007
Original. 38 x 50.5″ 

I began dream journaling but felt the process of writing didn’t fully capture what I experienced in many of the dreams I studied and wrote about after. Artistically, I felt I had a unique opportunity to visually attempt to depict what dreams felt and looked like. I began a dreamjournaling experiment inspired by Salvador Dali and for several weeks, began painting upon waking from the dreams I was having. In this dream, I woke up one morning after falling down in the lobby of a movie theatre. There was an intermission and I felt my dream body dissolve and shapeshift  into a familiar-looking woman. It was in this moment that I realized in my own dreams, I had the power to shapeshift into anyone I could consciously think of.

In this painting, I wanted to capture the feeling of waking up and becoming aware of oneself within a dream. In this moment,  I felt my body shapeshift from an amorphous indistinct creature to a woman with a red dress.
