About this work:
The Dreamer collection depicts the journey through worlds of memories, experiences, tangential thoughts and diverging feelings. The Dreamer(s) inhabit a surreal space, both creating and being consumed by the worlds they pass through. The Dreamer, like those who gaze upon it, is trapped in its consciousness and cannot escape from its own mind.
“We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives inside the dream” from Eternal Stories from the Upanishads
