Desert Nights and Lucid Dreams
Last series of 2021 takes us down to Memory Lane. Started with a photo I stumbled upon the internet of a Joshua Tree, I went back in my memories to the time I arrived to NYC as young immigrant artist, walking dogs in Manhattan, getting to know the streets of this amazingly busy, magical city. Just so later on, upon getting a car, I drove across country to lived in mountains of California, just and few hours north-west from Joshua Tree. I worked as a yoga instructor and lived for the outdoors. All the backpacking with my dog, exploring an unfamiliar-to-me territory, and spending endless nights under the wast starry sky have a huge influence on the person I am today. Desert Nights and Lucid Dreams is about this phase. Using recycled materials and mostly acrylic paints, this series is going back to my abstract roots once again, exploring new elements, ideas… and expanding in time and space.
My hope is to show possibilities to the viewers, asking you to explore your feelings, your inner self, and your own memories.
