From top to bottom: "Dream Sequence I", Dream Sequence II" and "Dream Sequence III".
Taking the inspiration from dreams again - much like my "Manifestation of Dreams" series - this trio of new works are designed to be seen together, but would I am sure work equally as well as separate pieces. The dreams in this series are a reaction to my own subconscious dreams. When I dream at night I do not dream in colour nor are my dreams very pleasant. In fact, that are downright bizarre or even quite scary at times. When I am out in nature in among trees, woodland and any beautiful landscape, I will always stop and absorb the beautiful energy of my surroundings and "dream" or meditate. My surroundings root me firmly in reality while my mind ponders over life and even "seeks answers" if you like......I then I bring myself back to self-awareness. However my subconscious dreams root me, as I am sure they do to many of us, in unreality in a totally bizarre world of strange images and situations. These new artworks tell a story on two levels: one is the intensity of dreams, "Sequence I" being lighter and ethereal, "Sequence II" being darker and "Sequence III" being powerful and highly psychedelic. However I have depicted these sequences in reality - the backdrop of the woodland and the pathway - as an "escape route" from the bizarre nature of the dreams. I wasn't inspired to create dream sequences purely from imagination but rather to create a backdrop of a real place.....Something I'd rather dream about.....!
