Comprehending Stonehouse’s work is not easy. His mind is like a big sponge wrapped in sticky flypaper where all manner of disparate people, places, artwork, literature, and experiences get stuck and are tumbled around in his dreams. Then they find form in his paintings. As Fred says, “I like that, in dreams, we often have blinding realizations and solve major life problems. Unfortunately, they only seem to actually work in our dreamworld. And I’m pretty sure that dreams function as a sort of safety valve. They keep our inner nut-job in a bottle.”
