Artist's description:

As many of my retreats to bed go... I close my eyes and sink into a screening of my mind, culminating in patterns, colours and psychedelic or disturbing images. Often this transition into sleep is when my mind is most relaxed and therefore creative, and has bought me some of my most inspirational ideas and moments. Effectively, this is when I saw the image of a woman standing amongst dream like creatures and patterns. I have always had a fascination with drawing the human form and believe it to be a very powerful subject. My strong Feminist beliefs arose within me whilst painting her. Ultimately frustrating me in both my views for Feminism and my work, as it took me many attempts to create something I was happy with. This bought me to thinking of why she had to be beautiful and why I couldn't just leave her as I had first painted on the canvas? Why do we want to see beauty on the outside? Perhaps because a painting such as this is 2 Dimensional and their is no personality or depth to the image, or is there? It was a catch 22 for me... a very vicious cycle!
