Artist Statement

Galbraith’s work tends to mix the real and the unreal, both literally (combining digital with traditional methods) but also creating dream-like atmospheres depicting the edge of reality and imagination. The strong inky lines stained into the paper, and drawn by hand represent permanence, synonymous with life and its inability to go back to the past to correct mistakes. The digital aspect of the work represents almost a daydream kind of effect that we all have. The hopeful wishing that things that aren’t possible in real life, are possible in this digital world. Juxtaposed together, they combine Galbraith’s wishes of living in an in-between state, not knowing whether or not one is dreaming or awake.
