Reflecting on Dreams is from my latest series Light on the Horizon: The world is a scary place - earthquake, world pandemic, raging wars, resources dwindling, climate deteriorating - but in the midst of the darkness, there is always light. Unlike my usual colourful artworks, this new series is dark and monochromatic. In 2019, at the cusp of the pandemic, I was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. The experience was harrowing but no matter how bad and how dark, there was always light - my very supportive family and friends, close proximity to an amazing hospital, great studio space to isolate in etc. My cancer is now in remission and the world is bright and wonderful again. This series is very dark but it isn't really about the darkness but the shining light. We can't see the brightness of light without the contrast of darkness. The world and our lives might seem dark at the moment but change is coming and we can look forward to the coming light.
