Continuing the tradition of the Fine Art Salon, each artist has been invited to share their interpretation of lucid dreams while showcasing their creativity, technique and style. The exhibit’s title, “Lucid Dreams,” is an opportune moment for each artist to express a fluid stream of visual metaphors, abstract symbols and expressions influenced and/or void of the bombardment of worldly events.

(Pictured above, Philip Guston studied with Jackson Pollock in Riverside, California and later attended Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. In 1931, Thomas Craven described Philip along with contemporaries of the time, “Actually these pictures are no more than visual evidence of the strange practices of freak artists who distort and mutilate the facts of life in order to make fitting patterns for their little nightmares.” A fitting commentary as disillusion will be amended July 8, 2011).

“The story talks louder than the paint.” Francis Bacon, 1959 (Featured above, Francis Bacon created many paintings in homage to his favorite predecessor Vincent van Gogh. Francis was quoted as “loving the violence in the grass.” Francis Bacon is a major influence on many of the featured artists).
