Vanitas Somnium

In this on-going project, I compose still lifes based on images, idea, and impressions of what I can remember of my dreams.  This is my attempt at working based on my intuition and instincts, all within a very loose framework a vague and fleeting mental concept.   Traditionally, the motif of the vanitas depicts contrasting symbols of what is permanent and what is transitory; what is material and what is ephemeral.  The impermanence of earthly goods mirrors the impermanence of intuitive clarity of vision.
