Bria Fernandes Artist Statement: "Dreams are our exaggerated reality. Real-life is hard, but dreamscape is the 'in-betweenness, a place where consciousness and subconsciousness co-exists and where we succumb to or conquer our inhibitions, basically decide our truths. Dreams reflect how we feel. When a dream feels real, it can draw the dreamer closer to their true image - knowing what matters and finding courage from within. The girl is in a strange unfamiliar world. The unfamiliarity of this world is life itself. To be fearful and give in, or to be courageous? Her courage is a self-personification- the wolf represents inner strength, new power, and the freedom to transcend insecurities. What matters most is the dream. It is an inspiration of sorts where one can grow, learn about themselves, and build confidence." (Source: Wall to Wall Mural and Culture Festival notes.)
