One of my drawings Lucidity, Block Island House is being exhibited in this year’s RSA Open exhibition which opens this Friday Nov 11th on the Mound.
The drawing is erased line over an insurance photograph taken by my brother Ted Marcoux of a bedroom in the Southwest Point Life Saving Station on Block Island, Rhode Island USA where my family spent summers in the 70’s.
Lucidity is the precursor of a False Awakening which is a vivid and convincing dream about awakening from sleep, while the dreamer in reality continues to sleep. A False Awakening can occur following a particularly lucid dream one in which the dreamer has been aware of dreaming ie Lucidity.
The RSA Open is a selected exhibition of small works sourced by open submission form artists across Scotland and includes new paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, photographs and architecture. The exhibition is on from the 12th November – 18th December
