My art serves as an escape into place that is familiar yet infused with a sense of wonder. The setting symbolises the boundless potential of the human mind, nostalgia and the simplicity of childhood. The broken mirror serves as a reflection of self and reality. The child’s harmless, untouched dreams are broken and beaten by society. The repetition of butterflies in the foreground represents the idea of freedom and breaking free from societal constraints. Through the lens of surrealism, I invite viewers to question the limitations of their own perceptions and embrace the potential of art within the subconscious.
