dreams for those who are awake

After exploring traditional forms of composition in previous exhibitions, I wanted to diversify and express the abstract notion of consciousness in a figurative way. This series of work is an attempt to define the intangible presence of the metaphysical spirit world by exploring the beliefs of ancient cultures through their documented facts, myths and dreams.
I am constantly exploring the similarities and differences between our contemporary civilization and ancient cultures and look to the past as a guide to the future.
