[…more] – PRACTICAL DREAMING is a body of work by artist Anthony Kelly, a variation of his show PRACTICAL DREAMING which was exhibited at The Courtyard, Herefordshires Centre for the Arts, England in June/July 2009.

In his introductory essay to the accompanying catalogue curator Seán McCrum attests that ‘Practical dreaming is an open place. It is a paradise garden, built through the poetic construction of imaginary and lived experience. In Byzantine heroic poetry, Digenis Akrites “made a perimeter and a lovely place within.” “In Xanadu did Kublai Khan…” It is part of being human. This open place is where creative evolution happens through the allusiveness, sometimes of words, pictures, sound or event, sometimes of all together. Here, in Anthony Kelly’s practical dreaming, the perimeter is the edge of the physical surface of a picture. The form, which it contains, is perpetually fluid, continuously evolving. Each affects the other, together making an open place.’

The show will run from Friday 12 March until Saturday 3 April

Concurrent with his show at The Paul Kane Gallery Anthony will be showing at the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College Art Gallery, Corner Brook, Newfoundland
