Story / Additional InfoThe painting is an abstract interpretation of the fantasy aspect and the sub-conscious feelings that dreams might evoke. In order to convey the complexity of dreams. painting is dealt in a loose, spontaneous manner that is expressed through swirling, gestural brushstrokes supported by alternating bright colors and intricate textures. This work is not necessarily a portrayal of nightmares, but it is exciting to leave the imagery open for viewer interpretations.
