Dream Vividly While You Are Wide Awake at This Exhibition by Courtney Miley

The Healthcare Gallery and Ellemnop.Art is proud to present Rapid Eye Movement (REM), a selection of 30 original works by local artists, Courtney Miley. Check it out at The Healthcare Gallery this Saturday, September 14th!

While you sleep, your brain moves through five different stages. One of these stages is rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. REM is the stage of sleep where the sleeper experiences rapid eye movements and the ability to dream more vividly. REM sleep is thought to play a role in learning, memory, and mood.

In this solo exhibition, Courtney Miley’s art places the viewer in a state of REM sleep while awake. Viewers’ eyes will conduct rapid eye movements across the canvas to capture the brush strokes while feeling a total sense of relaxation as if they were in the REM sleep state. Seemingly the titles of these paintings match the canvas as if they were the title of the canvas’ dream.

Courtney Miley creates art to discover the emotion of movement and the intuition of color selection in the composition of my art. Each day she encounters several streams of inspiration that give her the freedom to naturally bring creative works to the canvas.

Of her work, Miley says, “How we interpret our life’s experiences, our emotions and responses to them, greatly differ. The experiences we encounter shape the ultimate outcome of our lives, in this way my art imitates life. I do not attempt to control the outcome of my creative works, I only control the process, the experience. This affords me the luxury to experience the blending of artistic styles and the emotions these styles create. The final outcome is the canvas’ response to the artistic experience.”

Witness this unique artistic experience when you view the Rapid Eye Movement exhibit on Saturday, September 14th! Admission is free. For more information, please call 225-384-5378.
