Youngstown, Ohio-based artist David Slebodnick pulls pages out of children’s books from dream libraries. When encountering these works one has the distinct sensation of needing to be holding a bound volume of them, accompanied by verse or some fabulous narrative to mark the borders between the wakeful day and sleep.
“I have been actively pursuing a creative career since I could remember. I am always trying to find exactly where my art and I belong but now have just been focusing on the journey instead of the end. I am obsessed with subjects provided by nature; animals and all things of the sort fascinate me. I want to show them from a different point of view, not one up in a tree stand but one from inside where antlers are growing from my head and I am running through the woods.”
