dreams i wish i had A continuation from the series “Water Brother” - an ongoing body of work dedicated to my brother Stuart who we lost in 2001. Stuart and I had an obsession with water. After a near-drowning incident when we were about 8 and 10 years old, our infatuation became tenacious as we vowed to deny fear, moving forward. This prompted a string of recurring, themed dreams where I could breath underwater. My strongest memory is of blowing bubbles and passing them to my brother and friends so we could inhabit the underwater together, longer. I’ve always heard stories of people flying in their dreams, something I long to experience. This series explores that desire for the likely unattainable, backdropped into a dream. A fantasy - gaining my Brother's life back, to take flight. These images are a mirror for my imaginary, nostalgic desire and impossible beauty. Presented at immensely large scale, an emphasis on highly detailed aesthetics seduces the viewer into the feeling of flight. The triptych of oceanscapes align when hung strategically as do the diptych of skyscapes. Everything connected, always.
