San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2008
San Francisco design store and gallery, Rare Device, is proud to present Sleep Walk: New Work by Amy Earles (http://www.pushedunder.com/). Her work will occupy the Rare Device gallery September 4, 2008 - September 30, 2008. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday, September 4, from 7 - 9 pm.
Sleep Walk, a hauntingly sweet and sometimes sinister collection of gouache paintings, pencil drawings and paper dolls by Amy Earles, focus on the thoughts behind the artist's closed eyes: "the mind wandering, the quiet, travel the overcast and dusk." With her work, Amy hopes to give her audience a view into see their own stories.
Amy Earles has spent most of her life with pencil or pen in her hand and paper on her lap. Since her childhood, friends and family member have endured almost unending drawing sessions. Having a long enduring interest in dreams, Earles' work draws upon their symbols, reflecting everything from extreme sentimentalism to worry to isolation. Earles is currently located in Indiana where she focuses most of her attention on her craft and on those who share her life.
