Dream Series - Vanessa Kary

DREAM SERIES - the July Show at VASA.  Meet the artist July 4th, show runs from the 3rd to 26th of July.
Dream Series is a collection of 36 original abstract paintings using colour,
movement, and the feelings from each dream as inspiration for each piece.
The series is part of my Liquid Landscapes collection and was inspired by my fascination with dreams, psychology and the desire to understand the
subconscious meaning behind my own dreams.

Remember, as pine cones remember

when to be evergreen, as deciduous trees

remember when to bud, to leaf,

to let go and sleep dream. Remember,

as migratory birds remember when to unfurl

and when to fold their wings,

as the sun knows dawn and dusk,

as the moon knows all cycles. Remember,

as lakes remember when to be ice,

when to be in wave, and when to be still,

as each sea knows each river and each river

knows the rain and melted snow,
