New to the gallery today – Eva Breckon’s American Dream series. Eva spent quite some time living in the USA in one of her previous incarnations as a jazz musician/composer. Very striking and individual work. Here is how she describes it:
Everybody Needs a Dream
Every person depicted in this series of paintings has a story beginning in a land far, far away, but ending in America. For many, the idea of America, a country founded on a declaration of independance, freedom for all and democracy, helped them endure the many struggles that came with leaving their birthplace and finding a new home. America, in spite of all its many flaws, still adheres to the notion that anyone can make it with hard work. The American Dream lives on.
