Tobias Houlton’s practice has typically been engaged in exploring the world of dream, nightmares and mortality, and how these can reflect upon our vision of material Earth.
The world encompasses a whirlwind of emotions and experiences that can be projected upon objects. Material entities of which inevitably provoke symbolic relevance to each individual. The artist, to reveal underlying truths about our human existence, has manipulated objects of familiarity into surreal metaphors. These pieces are to act as quiet statements regarding life in a hectic world.
