L+/ Lucie Chang Fine Arts is pleased to present a trio exhibition, titled Lucid Dream, of three creative and talented female artists from Asia, Alice Lin (Beijing), Miloza Ma (Hong Kong) & So Youn Lee (Seoul). In Shakespeare’s plot, midsummer is a time for dreams, dreams that ought to be dramatic yet enlightening. How are we enlightened in dreams? Aristotle attempted to capture that very fragile condition of dreaming: ‘Often when one is asleep, there is something in consciousness which declares that what then presents itself is but a dream.’ As such, dreams are not always about creating bubbles. Dreams involve one’s consciousness too, which they are called ‘lucid dream’.

Consciously dreaming results in vivid colors and surrealistic imagination. Alice Lin, rooted from the traditional technique of Gongbi, combines human figures, plants and animals into different shapes of creatures. Miloza Ma distorted shapes of the characters in the artist’s dreamland. On the other hand, genderless figures in So Youn Lee’s works are innocent and joyous. The three artists consciously create dream-like stage for the characters to act in their own dreams.
