“I once considered the idea that our dreams were the real world and our awake state just a figment of our imagination. Of course, this consideration was the mindset of my youth with great imagination. I look forward to sleep although for many years now deep sleep has evaded me. My paintings have been described as dreamscapes. The moment I heard that I knew it was correct. The images and the environs.
The figurations which inhabit these spaces are identifiable yet fluid and sketchy in their presence. Certainly intentional. I believe the viewer is an important second half of my narrative. I make a statement and the viewer finishes my sentence . Have a great Winter Solstice. Sweet Dreams.” – Mikel Elam
