My Girl or The Dreamer

Featured image: Dreamer

Is she really anyone’s girl? Or is she her own girl? Dreamers usually are their own person. They are called dreamers because they frequently think differently than the accepted norm. They are the paradox to “my girl.” The dreamer in this painting asks the viewer to consider the assignment of identities to who she is. She, The Dreamer, celebrates the full spectrum of life’s processes, not just a single identifier. The Dreamer thinks deeply about the complicated relationship between, perception, subjectivity and objectivity, and hopes the viewer will also.

Perception is the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. Subjectivity is the quality of being based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions and the quality of existing in someone's mind rather than the external world. (Oxford online dictionary).

On the other hand, objectivity is the quality of being objective or not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts and not dependent on the mind for existence; actual. (Oxford online dictionary.).

Dreamers experiment, change, explore, discover subjectively and challenge the paradoxes of objectivity.
