Original artwork description:

Ballpoint pen on paper. Drawing of an uncanny scenery of a dream, a distorted view of my neighborhood. A dream full of obstacles to stop me from reaching pleasure and traps to expose my desires in an embarassing way.

Part of the series "Pleasure is not allowed"
(In my dreams, subconscious images emerge repeatedly, revolving around a common axis, the oppression of female sexuality. These images, whose meaning was initially hidden from me, were often interpreted through the process of psychoanalysis and took their place as personal symbols in my visual vocabulary. For example, after 15 years of painting sharks, I discovered during a session that the shark is the father, "the law", an authority which forbids the expression of sexual desire. Cherries, on the other hand, which appear often in my artwork, are the desire itself, an object also included in other personal stories.)
