The Beast of Broken Sleep by Johnny Adimando

October 23 – December 16, 2015
Weil Gallery, Watson Fine Arts

Adimando is fascinated with sleep, a vulnerable state we spend nearly one-third of our lives in, despite our human need for control. The works chosen for this exhibition draw on Adimando’s interest in, and experience with, nightly restlessness—the fight for, and sometimes, against, the parameters and occupants of the place/space we call sleep. Moreover, his interest extends to the possibility that at intervals of the sleeping-state, we are capable of communing with an alternate dimension. Adminado’s deft combination of materials and motifs, including screen prints, digital imagery, image transfers, and cut paper and board, come together evoke dream-like, other-worldly, and futuristic spaces where anything is possible.
