The Dreamers of This Century

Our world needs Dreamers. Crowds are erratic, confident, threatening, and yet sometimes gentle. Crowds form in military pride and in populist responses. In these crowds we may find representation of families, migrants, and perhaps protesters, all filled with hopes and struggles. This exhibition presents Mesa’s focus on the crowds as dreamers who see beyond and do something to transcend themselves to leave their mark in this world.

Mesa's paintings ask us to find individual worth and shared values of humanity in crowds. He sees his work as both self-portraiture and presentation of the anonymous everyman. His expressionist technique reveals the emotional drive of organized human determination. Mesa’s landscapes and compositions approach the surreal, allowing the dream and the Dreamers to take prominence.
