Opening Reception – Beyond Dreams
October 4, 2018
Art Gym Denver is excited to be exhibiting Beyond Dreams by Lesley Renner in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception October 4 from 5 – 8PM. On display October 4-26, 2018. Free and open to the public. Gallery Hours: Mon-Fri 9am-6pm
Inspired by the works of Klimt, Lesley Renner’s pastel drawings create a dreamlike scape of bold color and pattern. Beyond Dreams brings together works exploring the ways in which Renner utilizes pattern and color to relate her dreams in a visual manner. Viewing the tetraptych of a moon, included in the exhibition, leaves you with the sensation of looking through a window at night in the liminal space between sleep and consciousness. She skews and alters the viewpoint to emulate that experience perfectly. In her drawings of trees, Renner tries to imagine the colors from her dreams and elevate them even further. This is inherent to the work. She says, “the color in my pieces are beyond the colors I see in my dreams.”
