‘ONE NIGHT I DREAMED…’  Karla Bernstein Artist Statement  “You learned to run from what you feel, and that’s why you have nightmares. To deny is to invite madness. To accept is to control.” ~ Megan Chance ‘Bad dreams’ often pierced my childhood sleep.   The themes of the nightmares recurred, embedded within a variety of stories: fear of the dark and what it holds, loss of the ability to communicate, inability to escape to safety. My ‘One Night I Dreamed…’ series of composited digital images emerged as I looked back at these childhood fears from a more wise, secure, and compassionate stage of life. Taming the darkness and its bogeymen/women is my gift to myself with this series.
