This fine art book contains a series of contemporary works from Gaynor Perry's recent collection combining painting and photography in an exploration of self, dreams and mythic reality.
Each chapter charts a journey through subconscious imagery invoking characters and places real and imagined.
The preview shows the entire book.
Gaynor's inspiration manifests itself in a variety of artistic media. Exploring the mind's subconscious imagery she succeeds in "keeping the possible impossibility of dreams" ever near allowing her to capture the fleeting moments between imagination and perception. The realisation of these moments often demands more than one expression with the kernel of an idea feeding into a painting, a tune or a photograph. The video and musical aspects of these works can be viewed at: http://www.vimeo.com/gaynorperry "I love the way your figures seem to appear out of nowhere. They emerge like our deepest fears and most intense longings from the evocative backgrounds of abstraction. These mythological figures remind me of archetypes and Freudian thought. Each of your works are compelling and provoke us to encounter our subconscious in a direct manner." Abraham Lubelski, Publisher, NY Arts Magazine
