Created in 2020. Artwork Dimensions (w x h x d): 50 x 70 x 5 in. "Tulips and Chimneys" explores the relationship between youth and imagination through a surrealist depiction of children at play. As we age, our capacity for imagination tends to diminish, and we become increasingly bound by the limitations and expectations of the social world around us. Drawing on social theory, this work highlights the ways in which the socialization process imposes constraints on our imaginative faculties, limiting our ability to see the world through a childlike lens. By depicting children in a dreamlike landscape, "Tulips and Chimneys" invites viewers to reconnect with the boundless potential of the imagination, and to consider the ways in which social norms and expectations can stifle our capacity for creative play. Through the use of vibrant colors and fantastical imagery, this work celebrates the power of the imagination to transport us beyond the constraints of everyday life, and to help us see the world with fresh eyes.
