Mythos

2005-2008

As children we are acutely aware of the moments that shape our understanding only to be polluted by culture and society as we age. This extreme attentiveness blends reality and fantasy that, as adults, we tend to only visit in dreams.

Mythos depicts the beginning steps into seeing beyond the surface, recapturing those moments of fantasy that innocent eyes can only see. Flashes of stillness, anxiety, and mystery present themselves through familiar and invented allegories. These dreamlike fabrications bestow the dichotomies of good vs. evil, fantasy vs. reality, awake vs. dreaming and the axis that connects them all.
