Maryanna Hoggatt ‘All Aboard the Dreamboat’ @ Modern Eden Gallery

On November 14, 2015, Modern Eden Gallery celebrates Maryanna Hoggatt’s solo exhibition, ‘All Aboard the Dreamboat’. Instantly, imagination takes over and a vision of tiny dream boats docked along a sleepy shoreline leaves me wishing I had a ticket to this surreal journey.

Through the art of storytelling, this delightful new collection of two-dimensional paintings and sculptural resin works create a magical visual narrative of her continuing Animal Battle theme. Steeped in childhood reverie, while reflecting upon the emotional flight of internal conflict, the conception of her curiously enchanting subjects seem to summon a sense of tranquility and innocence within the poignancy of each piece.

Press Release

‘All Aboard the Dreamboat’ is the second chapter of Maryanna Hoggatt’s ongoing series with over twenty new works of fantastical creation, presenting the explorers of our subconscious who seek the ideas and dreams hidden deep inside our minds.  Ideas are transported along a dense network of portals, streams, and highways by galaxy-eyed Dream Guides, slow moving Thought Rockets, and trundling Seekers.  With “Dreamboat”, Hoggatt continues to build a world with memorable characters and an incredible attention to detail that invites her viewers to explore a little further.
