“Oneiric Landscapes” brings together works of art by 12 contemporary artists loosely inspired by the marks, forms and ideas created by Sara Kathryn Arledge during a very creative era around 1966. At the core of the exhibition, four unseen works on paper made by Arledge become a visionary stage for a playful exploration of fantastical dreamscapes. The landscape is opened up to reveal multiple expressions and media, contained in a dream-like field of vision. Brush strokes become body parts, limbs morph into mountains or tree-branches, and clouds masque as steam from a “fantasy train” emerging out of a field and body of water. Many cultures uphold the significance of oneirism, and “dreaming” always comprises the significance of place. The “landscape” in this exhibition, a classic trope in painting, and one frequently utilized in Arledge’s work, is our oneiric point of departure. Artist/dancer Flora Wiegmann, will create a dance at The Energetic Residency above the gallery dates/time to be announced shortly.
