dc.description.abstractWonder Lux is an art project that investigates the problematic relationship between the actual and the ideal, in the context of an attempt to construct a personal reality where these two concepts are one and the same. The approach taken is to create paintings based on or filtered through my internal psychic states, and to bring them together with other found images in order to reinforce this personal construction of reality, where what is external to me will more closely reflect what is internal in me. In doing this, the project investigates how the images we encounter in the world are complexly implicated in our desires, illusions, nostalgia, delusions, fantasies, resentments, and utopian/dystopian confusions. The project is conceived as a response to a complexly changing world that constantly presents new difficulties, with the constant demand to either accede to, or retreat from, external realities.en_NZ
