Stay (2011)

Inspired by a dream the artist paints the emotion one feels when morning beckons on one’s blanket and in a dreamlike state one wishes to hang onto the feeling of being the arms of their loved one.

The copper wire is woven in a representation of that feeling between asleep and slight awake when sunlight begins to tear away at ones eyes.

Acrylic on canvas with newspaper print, oil pastel and copper wire.
