A solo exhibition of work by Fariba Bogzaran, Ph.D. curated by Elia Haworth
Artist, scientist, curator, and writer Fariba Bogzaran, Ph.D., coined the term “Lucid Art” based on her scientific research into the parallel between transpersonal experiences in lucid dreaming and creative expression. Her multi-layered artworks address the philosophical, spiritual, ecological, and scientific milieu of life, and her paintings–as if visual music–revel in light, transformative energy, mysticism, and motion.
This exhibition invites you into three series that explore consciousness and inspirations drawn from hypnagogia–the state between waking and dreaming.
Fariba Bogzaran is internationally recognized as an expert in lucid dreaming. She founded and directed the first graduate-level dream studies program at JFK University in Berkeley, California, where she taught for two decades in the Department of Consciousness Studies and Arts and Consciousness.
