Dreams – Reality

Materials: pearlescent inks, Canson paper

Technique: calligraphy

Size: 30 x 21 cm


Description:  There is sometimes only a very fine distinction between reality and dreams. Here the words ‘Reality’ and ‘Dreams’ create a background impression as they alternate though the colours of the spectrum. 

Quotes about the importance of dreams are written in gold to symbolise the rich yet subtle influence that hopes and aspirations can have on our subconscious minds.
