Modern Eden Gallery Press // We are pleased to present the latest gallery solo exhibition of oil painting by Bay Area artist Lacey Bryant.

In this collection of scenes from a dream – of a dystopian future – the landscape is barren, overgrown, littered and disheveled. Peaceful scenes of reclaimed nature contrast with ominous skies and flooded buildings. Surreal elements blur the line between reality and fiction. 

The mostly youthful figures that wander through the majority of these scenes act out a range of emotions from despair to denial. They can embody the childish behaviors which we often don’t outgrow and our willful ignorance in order to continue the party.

The children are accusing, mocking and hopeful. Tricksters and witnesses to destruction. Resilient and disobedient, they display a defiant optimism in the face of an uncertain future. Making the best of a bad situation and a game out of the end of the world.
