Biography

I paint therefore i am... I Redream.

Some images of my work with the hidden paintings within paintings can be seen here

Who am I? My name is Wendy - known as ‘Redreamer’ and i am an artist. Originally born in England, I moved to Australia when i was 8 and lived in Western Australia most of my life. I had the fortune to be an art specialist teacher and also taught circus and permaculture. I came to the US in 2005 for an international art exhibition in Connecticut and relocated here in in NY 2006 with my boys and married my now husband Patrick and we moved to a 10 acre property in the Finger lakes.

My art is influenced by many things but one particular event stands out clearly. About 25 years ago i was travelling with some other artists down the coast to Torbay on the far southern coast in Australia and camped overnight on the beach - an impromptu art excursion and that night witnessed a bioluminescent spawning of plankton. The idea for painting light in the dark came about.... Read More

About 25 years ago i was travelling with some other artists down the coast to Torbay on the far southern coast in Australia and camped overnight on the beach - an impromptu art excursion and that night witnessed a bioluminescent spawning of plankton. The idea for painting light in the dark came about.

Since then i have worked on the paintings both literal light in the dark and also considering it as a way to look at the larger world. Interestingly my paintings have always had a strong indigenous Australian feel to them and around 15 years ago it was discovered i actually have a direct lineage to Nyungar - which i did not know until my parents began researching the family tree. My father’s side of the family originated in the area that my parents had relocated to with their young family. Coincidence? I think not. It is really a spirit of place - a sense you belong. My father always said he felt like he was home. Now we know why. He was.

My art also reflects a social consciousness i feel is important to talk about as we are all part of the natural world. I use bright colours to represent the joy, beauty and love and also as a way to make the viewer smile and bring happiness redreaming into their lives.

Redreaming…. Is a way of living that encourages you to recreate yourself and your world daily…. To be in your own dreamtime.

THE FIRST REMODERNIST PAINTERS EXHIBITION


1stARPExentry.html

Remodernism is an alternative to the established High Art hegemony, known as Post-Modernism, and its institutionalized cynicism and ironic detachment. As an Art Movement, Remodernism is somewhat unusual, insofar as Remodernism is defined by the Remodernist painters’ intentions, rather than by any formal qualities of the Remodernist artwork. In other words, Remodernism is a way of thinking about art, and the purpose of art, rather than a specific way of making it. Briefly, Remodernist painters do not think that Modern Art is rubbish, Remodernist painters do not believe that communication via art is impossible, and Remodernist painters do believe that one of the legitimate goals of a Remodernist painters' art can be the sincere expression of an authentic personal spirituality. Spirituality in Remodernist art does not equal religion. Religion is about beliefs and following rules. Spirituality is about the search for truth and Love.

THE OPTIMIST CREED
To be so strong that nothing can
Disturb your peace of mind -
To talk health, happiness and
Prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that
There is something in them -
To look at the sunny side of everything
And make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best and to expect
Only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the
Success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
And press on to the
Greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance
At all times
And give every living Creature you meet
A smile
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
You have no time to criticise others
To be too large for worry
Too noble for anger
Too strong for fear
And too happy to permit
The presence of trouble

PAINTING WITHIN PAINTING


I paint therefore i am...

It is what I do and what makes me happy. Iconic 'Paintings within Paintings'.

Some images of my work with the hidden paintings within paintings can be seen here



I do not work from images around me but from ideas and feelings using allegorical icons and motifs to present my work to a wider audience...mindscapes of my life.

I love to read and discuss and share my ideas and ultimately that is the satisfaction I get from my work ... it is a delight when my work touches someone elses life and makes them smile or nod with understanding... to me that is the most cherished of compliments....

I am happy and most of my work reflects that but also I have a social consciousness that despairs at the things we are doing to our planet and if i can serve to 'prick the consciousness' of the viewer then i will do so and without reservation...

i do not believe is sitting on the fence as a passive observer and wish to record in some way something about our contemporary society and the issues and dilemmas we face...
