While much of art deals with vulnerability and fear on a symbolic level, Fabien Merelle’s drawings and sculptures lay out the artist’s insecurities and nightmares for all to see. Using himself as his chief protagonist, Merelle depicts himself either naked or in his pajamas (reminding us that all of the strange things he shows us are occurring in his dreams). Still, when perusing his body of work, one picks up on allusions to the anxieties that haunt many of us at night.
