“Imagination is a part of reality: certainly, it influences my reality – what I think about, what I imagine and when I imagine it. The unique language and the symbol system of my paintings continuously evolve in conjunction with each other, year by year. I paint special or ordinary events which are invisible to the eye, and they sometimes merge with some elements of the visible world. My main source of inspiration is my dreams because they influence my work. My work also merges into my dreams.” ” – Lilla Benkő
