I am using surrealist methods of combining unnatural elements to convey the subconscious;
like the "Memento Mori" paintings in the 17th century, I am using the tension between
inanimate and animate objects to express our mortality and similar to the Romantic Move-
ment, I am emphasizing the imagination and emotion by the use of autobiographical material.
