The artist gain following because of her unique, dark and surreal style and imagery. "I can’t say how I arrived at this style," Virginia told to stylenochaser. "It has been a long and slow journey filled with a lot of research, but everything came very naturally, in a very instinctive way. I just followed what I like to do."

what's surreal about this. i'm asking as a former cat owner.
Extreme sleep paralysis is what this makes me think of. I get it sometimes and it's really a weird feeling.
I wonder if it means anything that all the other legs have long pants and different shoes than hers/the front legs..? If they're not all "her legs" in a sense, it feels uncomfortably vulnerable, feeling like you can't get away, no privacy, aren't allowed to control the direction of your own body. That's what I get from it anyway.
My immediate feeling is that father is with a new family, and she's the daughter from divorced family wanting father's attention. My second feeling is this is on the street; the man is a potential predator and girl's face in the window is someone seeing danger.
The oranges in the bottom left corner look a bit like something else...
Some people are like glass... You can see right though them
An Ariana Grande concert... Or many Louises from Bob's Burgers...
"And this, kids, is why we don't throw paper airplanes. Any questions?"
Ariana Grande fans watching while someone is being molested.
Oh my god there are other heads on the ground what is life.
If you do not like Ariana Grande... She will find you... And she will kill you.
I can hear Gloria Estefan singing, "The rhythm is gonna get'cha"
That's a sweet one :) Sleep sets your mind free, letting it wander away to magical worlds.
So creative! I love the concept. Her illustrations of water though somewhat annoy me on account of their synthetic appearance, but it's still cool.
I can bearly keep my head above water. Another inch and I drown...
I am behind French doors but can't get them to close. The lions will eat me...
