…..and about the Wolf hour
As I have stated before, the world of dreams has a special meaning for me. I devoted myself to this world more intensively in the years when I painted surrealistic pictures and was largely figurative. Now that I’m using more abstract imagery, the subject of dreams takes on a different meaning. It is no longer about “illustrating” dreams, as painters have done over the centuries, but about depicting states of consciousness. I have written about this topic before (dreamtellers) and so today I would like to present only 2 works that take up other aspects of the topic.
The Dreamweaver’s daughters cast their nets
The work shows slipping into sleep after the daughters of the dream weaver have been caught in the nets.
Wolf Hour (dream cycle)
I don’t know if this term exists in all countries. The wolf hour is so called because there used to be no people on the streets at these early morning hours – and only the nocturnal wolves were out and about. Many of us wake up at this time – consciously or unconsciously. The reason for this lies in our hormones. The fact that old dreams often plague us at this hour is also partly due to our hormonal balance.
