Artist Calls Accepted Artists
Artist Marilyn Murphy
Nashville, Tennessee, USA
The writings of Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962), particularly his books Air and Dreams and The Poetics of Space, have long resonated with my interest in dreamlike imagery. The drawing, One Lump? shows a festive fellow hanging on to an outsized sugar bowl floating above him like a balloon. His identity is obscured while the disparate scale of the elements creates a dreamlike atmosphere.
The silver bowl could be a symbol for tradition, hospitality or something delightful just out of reach.
