This exhibit was born out of a personal experience with a neighborhood homeless man who, with help, was able to turn his life around. From the crisis of homelessness in our city came a desire to create an exhibition based on blankets, beds, and shelter. From that point, Sean wrote: “I then wondered if the level of security of having a place to sleep affected how we dream. I was thinking about how we all enter the world of dreams, regardless of where we sleep. I thought that I would create a series of works based on the dreams of others. Through conversations … about art and social issues, my idea for The Luxury of Dreams series was born. I started soliciting dreams from friends, colleagues, collectors, other artists, and social media connections.”
