Lost Dream / Maura Sullivan
October 01 - 25, 2014
Pg Art Gallery is proud to present Maura Sullivan’s solo show ‘Lost Dream’, which runs from October 1st through October 25th.
In the exhibition 'Lost Dream', Sullivan explores the idea of memory, loss, love and dreams. A collection of cinematic yet intimate portraits reveal her subjects deep in thought - eyes closed, back turned, about to escape from the frame. The viewer is drawn to follow the subjects through the looking glass and into the beautiful world where they momentarily exist.
Each image evokes a forgotten memory or an untold story that invites viewers to complete the tale with their own memories and dreams. Sullivan's use of analog photography adds to the mystery, the texture and depth of the film's grain making the images even more tactile and alive.
Like dreams, which distill our strongest memories of love and loss into mysterious images, Sullivan's portraits offer a magical glimpse into the unknown and unspoken. It is the movement and blur, the escape and presence that make the images real. Into that stolen moment caught on film fits a little more emotion, a little more beauty, and a lot more life.
