Opening Night – Dream Sequence by Anthony Van Lam
About the exhibition
Dream Sequence – Superbly the tales of silence and the sounds we create!
Dream Sequences is the name of a series of paintings from my voyage of moving art.
Everyone has their own inspiration and muse. My inspiration comes from the emotive style of historical actors in silent and early talking films. Like in most studies and research we discover loss and hardship. There will be different influences from many actors.
I’m also fascinated with the catalysts of sound mimicking life – the Lyrebird. What an amazing bird. A masterful sound maker and possible recorder of sounds that have long disappeared.
Along with other beautiful muses that fascinate me like Art Nouveau, Erte, Orientalism, Art Deco, butterflies, dragonflies, and vintage colours, I’d like to share with you my collection of watercolours and mixed media artworks as I embark on circling on these wonderful and personal inspirations and possibly unfolding a few stories and new patterns.
