Tales of Longing

Dylan Bonner's avatar Dylan Bonner

My entry consists of two pieces; 'Mermaid' and 'The Sleeping Beauty'. I created these two paintings because I wanted to depict some of the strong emotions portrayed in fairy tales. The first is of a mermaid who is yearning to not be in her own skin and the second shows the pull and desire of romance. I wanted these pieces to be more about the feelings they evoke and less about the literal storytelling. I hope that will come across to viewers.
