David Alexander Flinn’s new exhibition at FHF’s north gallery is a journey through Dreams, Tears and Fears. The installations are immediately eye-catching and bring out a deep systematism, detailed and careful engagement; the whole work tainted with humor, vibrancy and provocative audacity.
David describes his Dreams, Tears and Fears as
” an exploration of the spaces in our contemporary narrative of fiction and reality, the borders and the blurred lines between what is true and what is perceived. Who is who, what is what and why is it so? If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, did it ever happen? What are our guidelines for a contemporary existence?
Dreams are a glance into our subconscious often forgotten or misinterpreted by our awakening. Within life's new parameters, is reality a dream? Where have our dreams gone? Are they our nightmares? Where do we live and how?
The only thing we are left with is our nature and our tears, whether joyful or sorrowful. What is left that is "real" is our emotional experience.
