Dream Baby Dream


June 4 - July 16 , 2021




False Cast is pleased to present this four person exhibition featuring the work of Farrell Mason Brown, Peter Jeppson, Tessar Lo, and Sam Ticknor. These artists span the gap between emerging and seasoned, with each offering a distinct powerful vision. The show explores a playful, genuine expression in artistic style and content. Ranging from naive, and self-taught to intellectual, abstract and illustrative, the artists depict their individual fantastic worlds. Their dreams in reality.




Farrell Mason Brown

“Through these paintings I’m investigating the role that fantasy plays in our lives. Sometimes dreams can be prophetic- telling of events that are to come. Sometimes through the very act of dreaming we can actually effect change in our lives by opening our minds to new possibilities. In other situations we are at the mercy of our own delusions- living more in our imaginal worlds than in the tangible world around us. I investigate how fantasy can animate a sterile existence, break through our overly materialistic world, and create unexpected connections and insights. Through painting a scenario, I can allow this reality to exist, even if it is just through a painting. I view painting as a very powerful practice- one that helps me co-author my life and revel in the mysteries that engulf us every day.”

Farrell Mason- Brown is a self-taught painter and sculptor. She has been painting since childhood and has exhibited her paintings with Eve Leibe Gallery (London), Field Projects (NYC), and Distillery Gallery (Boston). Her paintings have been published in Art Maze magazine. Most recently she has assisted the acclaimed artist Wangechi Mutu making bronze sculptures at the Modern Art Foundry in New York. When she is not painting, Farrell works as a nurse in NYC where she finds lots of inspiration for her artistic practice.

Peter Jeppson

“Peter Jeppson (b. 1985) is a visual artist from Stockholm, Sweden working within the field of figurative art. The graffiti background is clearly visible in the bright contrasting colors and the humorous titles as well as in the techniques being used. The most obvious similarity between Peter’s art and graffiti are however the approach to art and how to create. It is experimental, anarchist and naive. This does not mean that the approach or the practice itself lacks seriousness, rather an alternative to the cliché of the depressed, suffering creator. Peter’s way is a bit more optimistic, sort of like “If it's no fun, don’t do it”.

When it comes to Peter’s paintings and sculptures the techniques varies quite a bit (as stated above) but there is some recurring influences and objects. Early cartoon like figures is for sure a large source of inspiration and for the past five years, a figure based on a cigarette and/or a pencil can been seen in a majority of the work. The shape of the cigarette and the pen is similar and they can both symbolize life in a powerful and direct way; the more you enjoy the less remains.”

Tessar Lo


find me at the baggage claim of hallucination, experience, and memory-

the best things are slightly out of reach- familiar ambiguity, perplexing humour-

why are things filtered/ kept/ rejected?

time is the moving and refracting of all things, but conserved like energy- neither created nor destroyed-

the tightrope of defining and misunderstanding is an alley-oop,

Sam Ticknor

“These paintings are part of a larger series that celebrates the powerful combination of imagination and depiction. The paintings are energized, gestural, and drawing-based. Their compositions are delineated with distinctive red lines that cut through and sink back into hazy environments. Their subjects waver between sentience and abstraction. Couches
sympathize, sun rays sketch, pianos sigh, and screens scowl. Like a bright idea, their forms are on the verge of dissolving quickly back into nebulous shades and shapes.

The gouache paintings depict everyday kinds of moments, reconstructed via color, composition, and expression. The works reflect my tendency to transform monotonous scenery into characters, plots, and metaphors. I think of each new work as an opportunity to experiment in both technique and visual language. And while I may begin a piece with
a hypothesis in mind, I welcome the transformation of an idea that takes place during the making. Curiosity, discovery, and play are at the core of my artistic approach.”


Sam Ticknor is a Brooklyn-based visual artist. She studied fine art at Carnegie Mellon University (BFA '15) with a focus on drawing, printmaking, and animation. After moving to New York City in 2016, she transitioned to painting, primarily gouache on paper. After five years of exploration, Sam mounted a solo exhibition of paintings at Usagi Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, 2021. She will be attending New York University in the fall as an MFA candidate (MFA ‘23).
