For the last 5 years I have investigated the ideas and concepts surrounding dreams, surrealism, spatial value and relationships between reality and the subconscious, while developing my knowledge and practice of acrylic painting. Recently, I have produced paintings which challenge the viewer’s perception of space and reality through illusory, site-specific door frame paintings, which are driven by my desire to immerse the viewer into a dream space. Often painted in a non-photorealistic style, my own style of painting combined with illusionary elements is intended to conceptually bridge the gap between painting and immersive space. I have taken inspiration from the Surrealist movement, which is evident in my work and transferred through fantasy imagery of landscapes and domestic settings.
