I look for Clues in Your Dreams includes works that are informed by a spirituality that is influenced by the mythology of the American West and, specifically, Northern California. These six artists, who Marx also views as seekers and explorers, represent a continuation of the area’s rich visual and social history, including elements of psychedelia, community and a reverence for the local landscape. Following the lead of the utopian idealism and the beauty and freedom of the 1960s and 70s, each exhibiting artist reshapes and re-vitalizes the world around them in the pursuit of visual magic.
