Pen and ink on cold pressed paper
124" x 109"
Dreaming requires no concentration. The mind falls deep into the world of the subconscious and my imagination takes over. When I try to describe my dreams, it never sounds as magnificent or intricate as the experience. For many months, I’ve continuously dreamt of trees, an endless forest partway submerged in water and I am swimming. My drawing is not an exact interpretation but instead something I’ve created using the relationship between my dreams and waking life. I concentrate on line, pattern and repetition with the use of pen and ink to describe the infinite journey that occurs in my sleep.
