From the Inside Flap:

Daniel Merriam's second catalogue raisonné celebrates another decade of the artist's work. This remarkable book features 134 color images of Merriam's vibrant and skillfully executed watercolors. The paintings are illuminated by intimate perspectives and personal accounts in the words of the artist himself. The book begins with “A Vocabulary of Dreams: Fantasy Meets Architecture, Ornament and Nature,” an essay by a distinguished designer, historian, and author Paul E. Duchscherer, who writes: “A seasoned and masterful virtuoso with his brush, Merriam deftly captures the effects of radiant light, vast spaces, deeply dimensional textures, and vividly saturated colors. With the aplomb of an alchemist, he conjures up sly contradictions and secret messages, and juxtaposes them against audaciously unearthly backdrops. Strikingly rich, beguiling, and occasionally unsettling, these are not images intended to prompt one-sided conversations.” The book also features “The Ancient Content of Contemporary Dreams,” an essay by an internationally known analytical psychologist and expert on learning styles, Dr. J. Robert Hanson, who gives an important perspective on the nature of the artist's work: “...These paintings are a contribution to a rich lore not only of surrealistic paintings but of a tradition that goes back hundreds of years. The symbols are very similar, and if we could talk to the dreamers, we would discover messages not too distant from our own experiences today.” Welcome to the world of Daniel Merriam's dreams. A taste for adventure and an open mind will make the trip one to savor!
