– Dreams and the Subconscious –

MIDNIGHT features new work by eighty international illustrators, fine artists, and creatives who are bravely stepping into the realm of dreams and the subconscious. Artists create work inspired by some of their most vivid and memorable dreams as we attempt to unravel the secret undercurrents, fears, cryptic messages, and fractured narratives we experience through the thin veil of sleep. Throughout the MIDNIGHT exhibition, we welcome participants and viewers to decipher, decode, and analyze the artist's dreams.

About this piece:
In a place of perpetual afternoon light, stands a yellow two-story building; its wings infinite they fade into the mist. I'm six again and I'm wearing my favorite Sunday dress. I walk into the yellow building and, there are seven flights of stairs that lead to floors, indicating the place is larger than was imagined. The place is empty, save for a room at the highest part of the building. It is a small room, the size of a walk-in closet and in the middle is a stone slab and on it is a man drenched in black as if the shadows swallowed him. His skin is soot, and he is both alive and dead at the same time; I would go to him but I'd always wake up before I could. I still wonder who he is.
