Inspired by a verse from Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

“What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you went to heaven and there plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?”

This painting is about a merging of our dreaming and waking lives. It’s about looking inwardly – as symbolized by the blindfold – to the fantastic and malleable world of dreams. And having the courage and creativity to treat our waking lives with the same approach. Ah, what then indeed.
