DREAMERS exists to honor creators (or dreamers) like myself with colorful, visually arresting pieces that represent our vibrant and eclectic minds.
Secondly, through the poetry that accompanies some of the pieces in the series, the project sheds light on some of the heaviness and the doubt that often plagues the thoughts of dreamers as well. Those ‘burdens’ can feel overwhelming, yet are unfortunately often glossed over.
With this series, I’m saying to other artists and creators that:
“I see you. I feel you. I identify with your struggle. I understand your concerns. I know some of the thoughts you’ve had to overcome. I recognize some of the battles you’ve had to fight. You are not alone. We’re here together, overcoming together. Together we will keep rising. Together we can keep dreaming.”
This one’s for the dreamers. The mystics. The romantics. Those whose imaginations run wild and free. They are here with us, but they are over there also: head in the clouds, conjuring up alternate realities and new worlds.
You may call them crazy, weird, or even a waste of space. You may never understand them or see their point of view. But you cannot deny this: they bring color, a spark, that much-needed fresh perspective. They are living pieces of art—complete bodies of work in and of themselves.
They embody the mystery of life and add flavors that are beyond words. Life feels bland without them and we all go blind without them. For they are the visionaries, imagining new futures, charting new terrain, constantly leading the way.
They walk the untrodden paths, neither afraid to lose themselves nor their minds. They are infinite possibility. They are catalysts of change. They sacrifice their sanity for humanity. For beauty. For a new earth. This is their calling, heavy as it may be: To dream into existence that which we never ere could see.
