Description

Opening Reception: March 16, 6:00 PM-9:00 PM
Curated by Peter Selz and Anne Brodzky

Lucidity: Fariba Bogzaran, A Retrospective presents the work of the artist, scientist, and scholar, Fariba Bogzaran.

Bogzarans work is fundamentally grounded in her lifelong research of dreams and the concept of lucid dreaming: the state of being conscious while dreaming. The act of lucid dreaming allows for the construction of an unrestricted creative space where her body of work is generated. Bogzaran declares: Stepping out of the boxes of expectations, assumptions, a new level of consciousness is experienced and expressed. Whether by creating physical forms, or other means of creations, art becomes a way of life, undivided by the limitations of the mind.

Her trans-media installations, paintings, and drawings will be presented on the three floors of Meridian Gallery. Bogzaran proposes the gallery as an epistemology through which the visitor will experience the artists concepts and imagery of fear, scientific inquiry, and transcendence on each floor. Bogzarans Persian identity is represented through the suggestion of calligraphic script in the abstracted lines that can be seen in many of her paintings and drawings.

Fariba Bogzaran, Ph.D. is an artist, professor, and founder of the dream studies program at John F. Kennedy University. Bogzaran, a pioneer in the field of dream studies, has been an exhibiting artist since 1983 and curating exhibitions inquiring into dreams, science and consciousness since 1985. She currently lives in Inverness, CA where she is director of the Lucid Art Foundation, which she co-founded in 1998 with the painter Gordon Onslow Ford.
