DESCRIPTION

Artists-as-storytellers use a narrative structure to pursue superstition, human emotion, and the collective dreams that reveal subliminal anxieties and fantastic phenomena. Archetypal stories of love, greed, loss, and redemption engage artists for investigation of life-changing situations, shadows of evil, and the complexities of the unconscious. Reinvention is a characteristic wholly human, and once upon a time and now, we look to our own self-designated heroes within magical realms as the mysterious appeal of possibility.
