Memories and Dreams


Artist Statement

These images are a collection of visions that came from a mixture of realities and dreams that I have been inspired by. Fragments of my memories that suddenly appear in my dreams sometimes change their form and leave strong impressions. I often visit the same dream places that I have never seen in the real world, and some personal symbols keep appearing in my dreams. They make me feel like asking questions to my self: what do they really mean?

I feel that I am always on the border of two worlds: memories (reality) and dreams (imagination). Memories also cross present and future times. Our minds are free to remember, think, dream and imagine some personal events in different times of our lives. These inner time travels create my own reality and a personal vision to be expressed.
