Dreams I Wish I Had is a continuation from Water Brother, an ongoing series of waterscapes and landscapes, dedicated to my brother Stuart, who passed in 2001. I learned to rearrange the longing for my departed brother, by celebrating his existence through epic imagery. I now see him in all forms of waters’ change. He is part of the greater cycle, a body gone back to the molecular beginnings we all come from. He is a shape-shifter and these are my visual meditations. Each piece is made up of multiple layers and combinations of photographic captures, sculpted together to create a larger story. Each detailed nuance and gesture of cloud and waters’ surface is a character. They are carefully painted into a choreographed dance. When images from the series are hung in a strategic row, they align into their own wave pattern, representing the continuation of life in every frame.
Kerry Shaw is a photo-based visual artist from Canada, currently living in Southern California. With a conceptual approach, she absorbs remembrance into her daily practice with a focus on detailed and colorful aesthetics. Her work explores the ever-evolving, consequential, perpetual flow of nature and the elaborately beautiful. Her background in modern dance and traditional painting is evident in a highly choreographic approach to complicated elements. A ‘digital knitting’ process of designing seamless illustrations are made up of often hundreds of images and layers, painted into an effortless composition.
