Art Room presents Trips to Dream Space, a colorful and reminiscent series of artwork created by Glen Rose-based artist Layla Luna. This contemporary exhibition includes a series of landscape paintings alongside hand-written stories that incorporates memories with imagination to form unreal, unique spaces. The show runs October 3 through October 26, 2019.
Luna writes, “She was especially fond of the green and blue-hued photos in her mountain postcard collection. As she spread them across the blanket, she smiled and thought how much they looked like little pieces from her grandmother’s porcelain tea set.”
Through the use of recollection and her perception of the world around her, Layla Luna visualizes unfamiliar landscapes and experiences in her captivating series of works. She introduces the viewer to personal memories married with invented terrains. Luna uses her experiences of “thumbing through old photos and travel magazines,” along with vivid, playful brushstrokes and written word to tell her stories.
Art Room is open to the public and will host a reception for Trips to Dream Space on October 17, 2019.
