Artist Statement:

“My quest is to make the invisible visible.” Through dreams, meditation, and journaling, I explore the subconscious for divine intervention and ideas that represent my authentic voice. Presently, I am working on a dream I named “Breakfast in Japan” using mixed media materials of old and discarded Japanese books, paints, used tea bags, and other found materials and papers to do my best to portray the felt sense of this truly life-changing dream.

—Wewer Keohane
