The Essence of Sleeping

In my graduate painting series “The Essence of Sleeping” I observe the sleeping body and its rhythms. Sleeping person is in our eyes without conscious self and social masks. At the same time, sleeping mind is a great secret, where you can only get clues by interpreting the body language. This body rhythm I’ve been painting on canvas and the inner feelings I have written poems alongside images.

“and how happily we all shall sleep in those nights / when a prince called Narcosis / is stripping us with his gaze”
