Is it my dream? 
Oil on Canvas

“Taking my inspiration from ancient Egyptian paintings and their use of hieroglyphs, I document my own version of divine history using my dreams, childhood photographs and text as references. I try to visually represent the stories I imagine in my head and try to create a world I see in my dreams separate from the one I live in. When I paint, I try that the viewer will see an alternate reality, one that mixes real memories with my surreal memory and fantasy.
I turn old family photographs into hauntingly scary paintings because Isn’t our reality scarier than our nightmares? I explore death and surrealism through my painting in order to show that reality has intricate ties with fantasy. Our world is not so different than the disturbing worlds I create within my canvas. For me an old photograph is a metaphor, its existence is nothing more than a still life. I add textures and layers of Oil, Coffee and Cocoa Powder to create a feeling of grime and age, also to show how I see things in my dreams thus giving my painting a timeless feeling. The crux of my painting is portraiture and human figure; I render figures as porcelain dolls, lifeless without any soul, as dead as a still life around them. The more I look at old photographs the more lifeless they seem. All these photographs I recreate are candid and taken from my family’s archival history, but they all hold some sort of dramatized emotion, a real emotion, almost unbearable to feel and express. I try to visually represent the stories I have heard from others and I have in my mind together to create a false nostalgia for my viewer. I juxtapose my real with surreal memories, my reality with fantasy.”
