Juror's Choice: "On the Non-Linear Traverse of Time" by Nana Lutea from Vancouver, BC Canada

Photographs that rebel against rational thought, a surreal "superior reality" of the subconscious. {sharethis}

In Europe in the 1920's, the artistic movement called Surrealism focused a revolution against the constraints of the rational mind.  Psychoanalysts of the time used a variety of techniques to bring to the surface the subconscious thoughts of their patients. The Surrealists borrowed many of the same techniques to stimulate their writing and art, with the belief that the creativity that came from deep within a person’s subconscious could be more powerful and authentic than any product of conscious thought. These artists were also intent on interpreting dreams as conduits for unspoken feelings and desires. These works created didn't begin with preconceived notions of a finished product; rather, they were provoked by dreams, or emerged from subconscious associations between images, text, and their meanings.

Juror, Russell Joslin, describes dreams in relation to his work,

It is commonly believed that the primary function of dreams is to psychologically balance and compensate for matters left unsettled during our waking hours. In the dream world, the censors of our mind dissipate and the material in our heads becomesfluid and nonlinear—our past memories, fears and desires all surface symbolically, revealing to us a deeper understanding of ourselves. Metaphorically, this is how I have come to understand my photographic work. I see my photographs as visual manifestations of my subconscious mind—images that bypass intellectualization to reveal authentic feeling.

 

 

Juror's Statement:

My interest in dreams lies in their ability to expose our innermost psychology, desires, and fears in a primarily symbolic, visual, and emotional manner. Our deepest memories and the matter of our everyday lives can take the same precedence in the mysterious space of a dream. Dreams are universally personal, experienced only by the dreamer, sometimes so vividly that they are confused with the “reality” of our waking lives. Hallucinations are related, an expression of the interior workings of the mind, an altering of perception, or of an external “reality”.

As the title of this exhibition suggests, Dreams and Hallucinations is a conscious attempt by each artist to intersect the sometimes murky life of the mind with the medium of photography. Though the selected photographs are as personal and varied as the individuals who made them, I believe there are universally understood threads that run through them, and, like dreams, are left to be discovered and interpreted by each receptive viewer.
