“Dream Catcher” Paintings by Ilya Zomb
I’m not a big sleeper. I have NO trouble going to sleep, my challenge is staying there. Apparently, we need to cycle through lots of REM to give our brains and bodies a break, which includes lots of dreaming. In my case, there are all sorts of contributors to the problem including what is known as “sleep hygiene”. This has nothing to do with clean sheets. Rather, it is the temptations of technology: tv, cell phone, ipad, laptop, that are always ready to entertain me when I’m even slightly stirred from slumber. I’m working on it.
Russian-born painter Ilya Zomb knows how to catch a dream. His subjects are depicted in implausible scenes, often frolicking with wildlife. Viewing them is hypnotic but far from soporific.
