Deep Sleep

Jim McJunkin

An artist who pays much attention to his dreams, Jim McJunkin has for many decades created images he takes from dreams and from the feelings his dreams bring to him. Years ago the basis of his dream art came from creative use of wet photography. Today he still buys rolls of film to use in what most people would regard as an outdated camera. He also uses the new digital cameras and manipulates the images in a variety of ways that include but are not limited to use of computer photo editing. Deep Sleep is a collection of some 80 works of art that startle and delight-and always leave viewers with something to think about. The book contains verbal musings about dreams in general and McJunkin's own specific dreams. Jim has written for this book only about seven thousand words. Readers will find Jim's short essays informative, helpful in understanding the art, and delightful, but mostly readers learn about the dreams through looking at the graphic art (in color and B&W) and pondering its symbolic meanings.
