Sleep Etherea: Transcendence of Human Identity


“Sleep Etherea: Transcendence of Human Identity” is an exhibition of transcendental moments of the human experience. I want viewers to ask questions about identity and human interconnectedness and the authority we give to the past. The last few years have challenged me to shed past identities and embrace new ones, but they have also taught me that accepting vulnerability and giving lighter authority to attachments is a continuous battle for the human consciousness. This journey has led me to explore these moments of transformation in my art. 

In this body of work, I use dreamscapes and ethereal figures to explore the unconsciousness and observe the human form in moments of sleep, dream, death and rebirth. With symbolism and metaphor drawn from human mythology, I emphasize renewal, transformation and metamorphosis. With these paintings, I hope to express fleeting moments that are beyond our conventional attachment to identity.
