A false awakening is a vivid dream in which the dreamers think they have awakened from sleep even though they continue to dream. Elements of the dream may seem normal at first, but gradually become more surreal. In this exhibition, we will use the concept of false awakenings to showcase works that play with the viewer’s sense of reality. The works will explore the tension between the familiar and the unexpected. Both abstract and representational works will be included, addressing the theme from a variety of approaches, including form and texture, landscape and portraiture. The works may draw on dreams or dream-like experiences of the artists, depicting eerie or bizarre renditions of the ordinary.
