I Dream in Color by Kurt Erickson
Stop by during the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk on August 4 from 4-8PM for the opening of "I Dream in Color by Kurt Erickson".
Artist Kurt Erickson’s dynamic, colorful abstractions explore the bursts of radiance that come from the in-between spaces of our dreams. While awake, colors are used to represent everything from mourning and love to excitement or rage. When noticing a color while dreaming, the interpretation of that dream could be aided by what colors shine through.
While working in his studio, Kurt reverts back to a childlike creative headspace, letting intuition take hold. His subconscious mind moves to the in-between spaces and glimpses light and darkness. This body of work, like most of his work, is accessible to anyone and is aimed at the child inside all of us. Kurt’s paintings encourage minds to wander, referred to as dreams in the sense that they are open to interpretation. He hopes to make connections with each viewer and start a unique conversation between painting and audience.
"I Dream in Color" will be on display at Gallery 110 from August 4 – 27. The gallery is open to the public from 12PM to 5PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and by appointment.
