“’Dreams Made Flesh’ is all about the imaginary world and the ‘real’ world, and how things cross over between the two. Just as I, as artist, worked to make these imaginary forms real through paint and surface, the forms themselves work to make manifest what they are to the eyes and minds of those who will but look and see. Part of the human condition is the need to make sense of the world around us. We look at abstract forms with the question, ‘what is it?’ – wanting to fit into a preconceived idea. Sometimes, it is best to simply let them be what they are.
Like most of my recent work, ‘Dreams Made Flesh’ started as a drawing, one which established both the linear structure of the forms as well as the value range. The painting consists of successive layers of transparent glazes followed by selective applications of opaque colors.” – Ketelhut
