These paintings are based on my daydreams – weird and wonderful imaginings that occur with startling frequency inside my head. I’ve learned how to tap into this place by watching the way children - my own son in particular, so easily suspends his disbelief and goes for an adventure.
I feed my imagination a very rich and steady diet of children’s storybooks and theatre and try to indulge its every whim.
I hope my work reaches out and tickles the viewer – provoking their inner child.
My rules for making art are simple: “What if . . . ” and “Why not?”
It is so liberating to paint in a world where anything goes and imagination abounds. http://angierees.com/about
