A VISUAL COLLABORATION BY
SASHA DYLAN BELL & SARAH MARIE ROONEY
To be an artist is to have a deep need to create. It is to have a need to challenge, to play, to explore, to express and to find truth. Yet with these needs comes equally powerful fears. Fears of failure, of success, of insignificance and of exposing those very same truths.
A deeply personal journey, “Fear of Dreaming” explores this inner conflict, following a dreamer who has lost her way. She is paralyzed by her own fears and of what she thinks the worlds wants of her, becoming twisted and disconnected.
She must find a seed of hope and fight. Fight to become herself again. She must be playful and free, transforming, reconnecting. She must fight for truth. To tell it and to be it, equal parts child and warrior. She must embrace the dreamer.
From the birth of crippling fear, through a transformation into full artistic expression, we explore the constant cycle of an artist’s journey, examining the universal themes of personal truths and the barricades that keep us from living them.
