“Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes.”

-- Carl Jung

The Loop Sanctuary series has always focused on the art of the dream-like, hallucinatory and surreal.

These paintings are like dreams -
dreams of color in a bleak January
dreams of alternate realities.

Dreams are visions, and the two Capital Region artists spotlighted in this fourth Loop Sanctuary exhibition are visionary in the truest and deepest sense of the word.

G.G. Roberts' nostalgic automobile paintings have a mythic quality – the lost moments of the past juxtaposed with the dreams of a consumer culture.

Matt Tiernan's exquisitely sensual paintings bring to life a visual music that is both abstract and intricate.

Soak it in.
Fill up your eyeballs.
