Carrying the Dreamer

 

The background for this work came from a period in my life when, as a child around the age of 10, I dreamed the aftermath of a mythical and transcendental occurrence. This experience can be described as being a traveler transitioning into magical environments.  Here I found compelling movement and places with a concentration of forces existing in activated silence.

 

Fluctuating between unfathomable peace and playfulness or grim darkness, misery and corruption, these drawings relate to the mystical world of my unconscious and embody imaginary Fairy-tales, Utopias and Dystopias.

 

I have used mono-chromaticity to achieve a timeless atmosphere with elements that appear veiled, secret and uncategorized.  Made on darkened silver foil, the nature of this realm embodies extracts from a distant level of other worldliness.
