This body of paintings explored dream imagery and subconscious material that appeared in the painting process. The imagery was informed by my interest in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. A selection of paintings was exhibited along with two other bodies of work, Coming Forth by Day and Door in the Sky. All three bodies of work reflect a period of fascination with underworld mythology and Alchemical processes of transformation. They were exhibited at Touchstones Museum of Art and History, Nelson, B.C.
