White Dreams deals with themes of sex, love, death and the human condition. Similar to a dream, the work hints at reality but aims to move away from a strict literal representation. The dream-like portraits are stripped of unneeded components, leaving only essential human forms and negative space. Hints of Kamea Hadar’s Israeli and Hawaii background can be seen in both painted imagery and materials like Koa, a wood traditionally used within Hawaiian culture. The wood not only gives a natural and live quality, but also adds another dimension with its uniquely vibrant and three-dimensional grain. The twenty foot tall chandelier-like centerpiece takes this a step further and allows the audience a chance to interact with the work by climbing a staircase towards its central window. These interactions along with striking images, raw human emotions, and room for interpretation allow the audience to connect with the portraits and truly experience the work.
