a sequence of real or imaginary images like those seen in a dream.

Mad Betty’s work incorporates a realist ambition muddied by dreamscape, She draws from folklore, fecund nature and pastel twilight.

There is a technique fostered by the Surrealists, “Automatism”, whereby one attempts to surrender the conscious mind to the free-flowing exploration of shapes and line.

One pushes pigment around tenderly and recklessly.

Suspension of attachment makes a path for the pursuit of ephemera.
