Using the surreal act storytelling as a means of distorting the everyday and explaining the human condition.

Stories are cultures way of understanding the ways of life which we embrace, and the society with which we inhabit. Like folktales passed down through generations - distorted and altered by word of mouth - stories are the teachings of everyday life, exaggerated and warped in time. Fiction is our attempt at a collective comprehension.

The exhibited work documents our individual take on the history of storytelling; using a range of visual disciplines, altering our perception and introducing an abstracted, surreal narrative style into the visual work in the process.
Our artists' collective draws inspiration from the kingdom of fiction. From dreams and nightmares, to traditional fairytales and modern storytelling.

For further research on the theme, please look at my work on 'Outsider Art' and 'Fairytale Therapy'.
