Dream of the blue headed horse: Visual Art acrylic on wood

The Blue Headed Horse is a surrealist photographic artwork using acrylic painting on wood. The subject of the picture is a mystical animal spirit, represented by the abstract figure of a horse.

The spirit guides dreamers through dreams.

The predominantly blue and white colour palette and use of abstract shapes makes clear that this is not a depiction of a reality, but rather of a vision. The surreal nature of the horse, its head in unnatural colours is mysterious.

The horse suggests a symbol of journey and travel, indicating that the dreamer is being guided through various experiences within the dream realm.

- acrylic painting on wood, visualising a dream spirit (the Blue Headed Horse). These spirits seem to exist to guide us through dreams. Perhaps we become these animals in dreams, or perhaps they are hallucinations. The act of painting an hallucination is what? To engage in its fantasy or somehow take note of its encoded messages?
