‘Waking Dream’ Nneka Uzoigwe

Pyewacket. Oil on canvas, 89 x 99 cm (unframed), 117.5 x 130.5 cm

A collection of mysterious paintings opening doors onto the imagination, Waking Dream explores the beauty of the semi-consciousness. Weaving a web through personal dreams, desires and tchotchkes. Alone within the sepia hours of dusk and dawn, daydreams appear. A kaleidoscope of inner self swirling from fragments of past and present. Objects become portals to memories, dreams converge into a jumble of worlds that create a familiar space and fantasy’s flicker between nightmare and fairy tale. I wanted to create paintings that felt like freeze frames of a magical event about to take place, creating a space that is happening in the mind while also being present.” – Nneka Uziogwe

Nneka’s fantastic exhibition ‘Waking Dream’ is being held at The Gallery at Green & Stone from 6th – 18th September 2021. Be sure to go along!
