How would it feel to dive into your own surreal, dream world through a painting?
Like most of my artwork, the Animal in Me series focuses on subjective experience and the “inner life” expressed through animal symbology and mythology. Using inkblots as a starting point, I use surrealist techniques to create paintings that tap into the subconscious mind.
I’ve always been fascinated by the animal side of our human nature, the instinctual and unconscious desires that often drive our actions. What started as a rather personal series, changed as I began to share the inkblots with people and gain insights into what they were seeing.
