"The guest from dream"

Unique art|36.2 x 48 in

Seeing dreams are endless source of inspiration for me. My works are connected to my experience of dreaming. These are attempts to organise the chaotic images I see on the screen of my consciousness when I am asleep.
As an artist I am more interested in the visual side of the dream rather than the interpretation. I am especially interested to explore two of the stages of the dreaming. First is the one called REM when the sleeper may experience vivid dreams. The second is called NREM 3, which is the deepest stage of the sleep. Only on this stage the sleeper may experience the most stormy emotions and sometimes the strangest phenomenons like night terrors and sleepwalking. It is very hard to work and experiment on this stage of sleep because almost everything is being instantly forgotten when the person wakes up. I have been trying to collect the remnants of my memories to restore the images I saw in dreams.
Sleep is a special laboratory for me where the matters or the mental materials mixing with each other, creating new images and shapes. Here the memories are coloured, the sensations have geometrical shapes and the time has layers. These three factors are the base that I use to create my works.
