Remember You Are Dreaming by Jacki Mayo – Westobou Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: February 1st – March 15th, 2019
Gallery: Westobou Gallery
Gallery Hours: Mon –  Fri 10 AM – 5 PM

Artist Reception: First Friday, February 1st, 5 PM – 8 PM

Each year, Westobou seeks to support the work of local artists through an annual solo exhibition. This year, Westobou selects Jacki Mayo as our featured local artist. Her exhibition, Remember You Are Dreaming, will be on display at Westobou Gallery from February 1-March 15, 2019.

The human condition is forever bound to the impressions that are received through the senses.  Jacki’s latest work explores a multi-dimensional dream world of tricks and illusions we perceive from those senses which often fail us. She aims to make viewers question what is real by exploring beyond our own perceptions of reality and to be awakened to the infinite possibilities of life. Remember You Are Dreaming is on display at Westobou Gallery from February 1 through March 15, 2019.

Artist Statement: I enjoy exploring themes of space and sea, two vastly unexplored regions of mankind. Painting these scenes has become a tool for me to navigate and process my thoughts as I delve into the depths of my own consciousness. It has provided catharsis in the sometimes painful process of illuminating the dark corners of myself while also helping me to live in the present moment. It is my goal to inspire others, to encourage them to question their realities, to integrate the wholeness of their beings, and to awaken the creative child within, while also bringing attention to the natural and supernatural world.

Artist Bio: Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, Jacki first became interested in art at a very young age after watching her mother doodle a woman’s portrait. Later influences of Lisa Frank, Bob Ross, Alex Grey, and Jay Jacobs would build on that foundation and help shape the work she creates today. It has since become her goal to plant seeds of creativity in hopes that others may find solace in the wonderful worlds of their own imaginations.
