BA (Hons) Fine Art | Class of 2020
Inside my mind there is a hidden world. A world that often manifests in my thoughts, dreams and visions. A world that still remains unexplored. “Journey” is a project of experimentation and self-searching that simultaneously attempts to take the viewer on a trip of inspiration and creative motivation. A journey into the world that is inside my mind. In my work reality and dreams are intertwined, feeding off of each other to create surreal, psychedelic realms where everything becomes a possibility. These realms of infinite possibilities are depicted as planets within the same universe, waiting to be explored through their landscapes, depicted by paintings of oil, acrylic and pastel, mixed with linocuts and digital manipulation.
My work is influenced by many late 19th and 20th century artists, including but not limited to: Wassily Kandinsky, Yves Tanguy, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Giorgio De Chirico, Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst. Other influences include Greek mythology and ancient civilizations.
