A Dream Library: The Art of David Slebodnick


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.

David Slebodnick is an illustrator, fine artist, and animator residing in Ohio. Artist statement: "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." https://www.instagram.com/daviddrawsdrawings/

    I enjoyed the relaxation, the upwardness and the coping. Or is it that he just doesn’t notice? Lovely complex stuff! Thanks.
