Lucid Playground

Behind each of these paintings is the story of a recurring nightmare. It is a collection of personal dreams, as well as the dreams of people who suffer from various sleep disorders. The accumulation of these unique experiences have led her to gain a deeper understanding of creative perspectives during various dream states, which she has attempted to unravel and portray through her paintings. Surrounding the investigations of the manifestations of imaginative and sensual portrayals of the lucid experience, Yu aims to influence all dreamers to approach and embrace fears in the perspective of art as therapy. By harnessing the ability to control dreams during the state of lucid dreaming, she wishes to share and express this imaginative power onto the canvas; the power to turn a frightful dream experience into one filled with hope and fantasy.
