“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” — Dr. Seuss

Everyone has the capacity to build castles in the air. In fact, a little bit of daydreaming can actually enhance happiness, wellness and pave the way for creativity to flourish. Two Worlds; One Fantasy therefore invites the audience to view life through a visual utopia and in the process, encouraging them to take a short break from their daily routine to start fantasizing about what-ifs, as they did in their younger days.

This series latches on the preliminary idea of having a 3 year old child explore her imagination through various pieces of artwork, while the adult artist, Jaxton tries to re-imagine them and in the process, injecting his own fantasies into his rendition of the artworks. The artworks while placed side by side form an interesting contrast and it also brings out the idea that anything is possible with a little bit of imagination.
