Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic, Pastel, Spray Paint on Canvas.

I've been interested in lucid dreaming since I can remember, and have been training myself for years to be able to harness it. I notice it comes easiest when my life is particularly stress-free or when I have more inner confidence.

Sometimes I have hedonistic adventures full of art and architecture, exotic pets, and interesting erotic encounters. Other times I just soar around overhead and observe the vast dream-world created by my subconscious, as if a drone, or like the concept of an Oversoul (see: transcendentalism). Sometimes I make paintings in my dreams, which I usually can remember when I wake up.

The psychological phenomenon of lucid dreaming reminds me of art-making. It points to ideas of subjective reality, playing god, and the desire for control. It also reminds me of the Alan Watts thought experiment, "The Dream of Life": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU0PYcCsL6o
