Jen Mauldin Gallery is thrilled to introduce our first solo exhibition with Paxton Maroney, entitled, Reverie.
Paxton Maroney’s surreal photography invites the outside world to step inside snapshots of her dreams. For several years, she has woken up from vivid dreams, often in the middle of the night, and drawn the images composed on the backs of her eyelids. At times, she even engages in lucid dreaming throughout the day as she’s “trained her brain” to create new chimera for her portraiture. Then, when she has scouted out the perfect location, she begins reconstructing the scenes of her subliminal imagination.
To Paxton, dreams aren’t so much stories as they are symbolic images that tend to hold deep meaning for the dreamer. But don’t bother asking her what her art means… she’d rather you step inside and find the meaning for yourself.
An opening reception for the artist will be held at the gallery, Saturday, February 4, from 6-10pm. The show will run through Monday, February 27.
