The Significance of Dreaming

The Significance of Dreaming

Dry point and chine colle. The work was a year long investigation, with research and practical work, in to the significance of dreaming within art. I aimed to find out whether anything reliable could ascertained about an artist, his state of mind and lifestyle by the work created from his dreams. I studied other practitioners and philosophers for the research, but the subject for the practical work was taken directly from my dreams. I collected the dreams each morning in the dream diary and then used it to create the images.
