About the Artwork
I Think She’s Dreaming was a piece I made during the first lockdown in my make shift studio at home. The imagery taken for this was of a surreal image of a nude lady lying arched over a grassy hill, open to the landscape which surrounded her. It felt as though she was surrendering and connecting to the natural environment she was in, and that idea felt relatable at a time when natural causes of the pandemic were forcing us all to surrender to it.
