Dreamclinic has been showcasing local artists in its clinics since first opening for business in 2003 as a way of supporting local artists and helping them get exposure for their work.
Dreamclinic CEO, Larisa Goldin, who is an art enthusiast, really wanted the clients to have the welcoming and engaging experience of original art on Dreamclinic walls. She also knew that many artists struggle in finding venues to feature their artwork. She decided it would be part of Dreamclinic’s company culture to connect with local artists and give them a place to display their work gratis. When clients buy art that they discover on Dreamclinic walls, one hundred percent of the sale price goes to the artist!
“I’ve been a client of Dreamclinic for 2 years and always appreciate the extra touches in the clinic that change with the season like flowers or art. I recently fell in love with a painting in the hallway of the Roosevelt clinic and am looking forward to adding it to my home!” ~ Kathy Rose
Below are some of this quarter’s artists showcased at Dreamclinic’s 3 locations; Roosevelt, Queen Anne and Redmond.
John has painted in oils since 1990, and has a reputation for intensely bright, rich colors and odd perspectives and organic shapes. Influences range from impressionism, expressionism and cubism to illustrative style and heavy surrealism. The Machine series is an opinion and surreal fantasy about the current state of technology. Using useless gadgetry and senseless circuitry to portray the world is the direction this series aims for.
The incredible natural world offers almost too much beauty to take in, I try to capture the quiet second of a flowers life while ignoring the chaotic busy world zooming around us. Vivid colors provide opportunity for inspiration and meditation.
Esther’s Sharpie art has been featured in the 2013 UW Clamour Journal and shown throughout the north Seattle area. Her use of bright color and surreal themes are used as she draws emotion from her life experiences with love, loss and travelling abroad.
Not only is Esther an artist, she is also one of Dreamclinic’s very own massage therapists.
