“As you flutter between phases of waking and dreaming, a shifting form emerges at the edge of your vision. Is that.. you? Someone you know? Is it even human? As you struggle to focus, reality drags you back into its embrace. Your eyes snap open and sunlight floods your vision as the figure fades into nothingness. But the piercing gaze and echoing questions remain, burned into your consciousness.⠀

‘Hypnagogia’ is a part of my growing collection of pieces exploring ethereal beings wandering through whimsical, surreal worlds. I’ve always been fascinated by the strange imaginings our brains cobble together in the depths of our sleep, or within our meandering daydreams. Each painting is an effort to communicate with these beings; to follow where they roam and listen to the words they whisper.
