Trips to Dream Space (2019)

“She was especially fond of the green and blue-hued photos in her mountain postcard collection. As she spread them across the blanket, she smiled and thought how much they looked like little pieces from her grandmother's porcelain tea set.”


Trips to Dream space Statement

What does a mountain look like to someone conditioned to the flat and wide open prairies of North Central Texas? To visualize an unfamiliar place, one must pull from known landscapes and experiences. Memories combine with imagined images to form one unreal but very unique space. Trips to Dream Space is a series of landscape paintings filtered through recollected places and invented terrains. It is a reflection of time spent thumbing through old photos and travel magazines and uses storytelling to help carry its message.
