From the artist

As seen from Lymington, the mountains encircling Port Cygnet make an ideal setting for a nocturnal landscape that opens to a realm of dreaming. As a child, the artist lived within walking distance of Manhattan's MoMA where her favourite works was Henri Rousseau's "Sleeping Beauty", a naive nocturnal fantasy.
