This is a personal piece that I created by painting 3 layers separately. I experimented with Yupo paper textures overlaying the background and figure and I'm really enamored with it. I'm not sure if I will be for long but I'm excited for the possibilities that this piece may lead to.
I was inspired by a radio interview (Fresh Air) with Guillermo del Toro about Pan's Labyrinth and in it he mentions 'lucid dreaming' a condition in which you awake in your dream without realizing you're still asleep. This idea of a waking dream, an endless pattern of surreal dreams has become my obsession.
