About this piece

THE PRELUDES is a series of 105 images using pastels and graphite on 100% cotton paper.

These are small images because the dream image is small and are truly the ‘prelude’ to the larger paintings. As an example, Prelude No. 72 becomes FALLING MAN
The dream speaks to me through the feelings evoked by the objects in the dream landscape. To understand what is being said, I begin the exploration by taking the dream apart. This is done using a three-phase process:
1. identifying the objects in the dream landscape (these objects are created by my life’s experiences, are familiar, and I know well because at one time evoked a strong reaction).
2. exploring the feelings evoked by these objects
3. bringing the objects and feeling evoked together.
This process helps me to ‘locate’ a ‘landscape’ where the possibility for understanding exists.
