Dreams are reflections of the mind's exploration of reality. My work often signifies a dream state: altered or fragmented visions of reality that is blurred and obscured by a haze of incomprehensibility. I use pillows to represent containers or cradles for the mind, which symbolically become embedded with the mind's thoughts during sleep.
