Nightmare - Portico Arts - Art Print by Elizabeth Legget

This piece is one of the Stephanie commission set and in a lot of ways one of the most enjoyable ones for me.  I knew that I did not want to approach this in more traditional manners as I was not interested in a black horse with flaming hooves.  (There is nothing wrong with that, but I believe a lot of artists have already done that and have done it very well!)

I wanted to focus on the deepening levels of sleep.  That is symbolized in the tunnel archways in the right hand corner.  I also felt that this should be very much in motion.  The textures, the splashing, the patterns in patterns seemed the most indicative method of demonstrating that layer of unconsciousness.

"The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind."
