THE SANDMAN

2019- 2021

I fall asleep and let the sandman come to me. He arrives and takes me gently into my subconscious where dreams are the messengers that populate my night. Still with me when I wake up, the imagery appears discreetly throughout the day and then disappears. 

There are recurring symbols in my dreams, which is not uncommon, I believe we share a collective subconscious. Capturing these symbols, I have created a unique alphabet. I use this alphabet to transcribe the dreams, writing with sand on canvas fabric of a similar color which echoes their evanescent character. The edge of the canvas is woven with thread to frame each dreams in order to capture them forever.
