Jane Wunrow describes her migraines as a “waking dream,” where her fogginess, pain, and visual aura come together and force her to view the world in a different way, with perceptions of reality wholly altered. Migraines and dreams remain central to Wunrow’s artistic inspiration, not only due to their visual effects but also because of her interest in the science behind them. For the last several months Wunrow has immersed herself in a more clinical-based self-study of psychology’s discourse around dreams and neurology’s discussion of migraines in an effort to understand what causes them. Her artistic output on the subject culminates in the collection “Seeing Voices,” on display at Gamut Gallery February 3rd through March 3rd.
Wunrow’s works are directly influenced by specific dreams or migraine aura she experiences, particularly those that surface subconscious fears, pains, or perceptions. While creating, Wunrow puts herself back into that mental headspace and taps into the emotions that she felt in that dream state, imbuing her works with raw feeling. The artist believes that viewers are perceptive to these contributions, and that the work would be ingenuine without this process, which she also cites as a method of working through the myriad of sensations that dreams create.
