In this exhibition of paintings\, sculptures and installations \, Tarryn Teresa Gallery explores the landscape of the subconscious. Dream- like states\, trances\, hypnosis and fantasy serve important personal and e ven societal functions.  Americans relentlessly\, yet often superficially\, espouse scientific explanations.  Is our quest to explain everything by sc ientific (or pseudo-scientific) means an attempt to mitigate and control th e influence of the “unexplainable” in our own lives? If we reduce our night mares to symbols relating to our day-to-day concerns\, does that upend thei r ability to terrify? If undergoing hypnotherapy helps us to quit smoking\, does that render the trance-like state comforting rather than frightening?

While attempts to define the meaning of subconscious have been as varied as the visions they try to cont ain\, a definition which is too rigid flattens meaning instead of illuminat ing its complexity.  The eight artists in this show toy with expectations o f conscious reality: whether the work deviates from an anticipated size and scale\, confuses the distinctions between inanimate objects and animate be ings or details an existence that wobbles between decay and growth. In Phan tasma\, the gallery presents dreams\, fantasies and visions that cannot be reduced or compressed in meaning\; rather\, their interpretations are as li mitless as the subconscious of the viewer.
