Last Friday the 7th Annual National Self-Portrait Exhibition opened at the 33 Contemporary Gallery located in the Zhou B. Art Center. Entirely devoted to different aspects of self-awareness, the show features works ranging from representational to conceptual explorations of self-awareness in a variety of media.

Within the show was Harrington Photography college instructor Tim Arroyo’s awesome work below! In addition to being selected for the show along with over 100 other artists, his photo was chosen as the poster image for the show, and was used in the print and video marketing for the event.

One of the unique features of this show is the ability for attendees to use their cell phones to call a number specific to a piece to learn more about the work. Here is the description that was used for Tim’s work:

“This work titled ‘The Dream Voyager’ by Tim Arroyo is part of a series of works titled ‘Stage 5’ named for the sleep stage where dreams occurs. The works in the series are surrealistic in nature, and are visual interpretations of imagery extracted from Tim’s dream journals.

‘The Dream Voyager’ is a digital composition of photographs, who serves as a metaphor for Tim’s subconscious mind. In the photo the body decomposes and recomposes as it travels in and out of dreams through the oblong-shaped portal. The balloon head serves as both a navigator and narrator, who leads the dreamer on a journey through the psyche providing clues to the interpretation of the dreams.

This photograph was printed on a 24”x30” hand-coated sheet of Arches printmaking paper, and printed with pigment-based archival inks by the artist.”
