Artist Statement:

Saskia’s current work explores the subconscious mind through the vehicle of dreams. Translated into paint, the work explores the language and visual landscapes of dreams. She is primarily an oil painter, but frequently employs sculpture and photography as aides. The end result aims to find a deeper understanding of, or perhaps get lost in, the dreamer’s psyche.
