The first in a series of sleep and dream related imagery, ‘When I sleep’ is a tangle of arms and legs. A female drifts away into another world, where her body and mind transform. The dream state combines the conscious and subconscious, freeing her from all earthly shackles to become her authentic self. A nod to Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Austrian symbolism, while the ethos of this piece is almost ethereal, the bold primary colours anchor it in the real world.
