My artwork is an exploration of a “dream logic,” a constructed combination of the fantastic and the real. It contains an intrigue of something found in the crossover between dream states and hyperreality, a whimsical dichotomy between surrealism in the everyday and the constructed. By juxtaposing figures into different landscapes and spaces, and by using hand-made sets and props, as well as finding extraordinary but overlooked scenes, I try to access the viewer’s unconscious. “Dream logic” examines the dialogue between self and otherness, real and unreal, and the natural and the unnatural.
