Dreams of water are closely related to the emotions experienced in the day.  My works make close references to the writings by Edmund Burke’s on the notion of the sublime and the beautiful.   Burke suggested ugliness as an aesthetic quality in it’s capacity to instill intense feelings of emotion, ultimately creating a pleasurable experience. Have you dreamt of an approaching storm or a lake so still that it instills fear? The bold strokes and the strong movements in the works brings out the powers of nature against the fragility of our consciousness. It examines the relationship between the fear and the beauty in it. The emotions that our subconscious  is trying to tell us.
