Artist's description:

'Hypnopompia' refers to sensory hallucinations experienced between sleep and wakefulness coined by Frederick Myers. This painting was created after I spontaneously experienced some strange visual phenomena on waking and was my way of making sense of this although it isn't a direct representation. Rather, the image emerged through my usual process of painting although I cannot deny that the experience had some influence.

My paintings rarely begin with an external influence or concrete idea and if you were to x-ray my paintings you would find several unresolved paintings buried beneath in subsequent layers of cold wax and oil paint of contrasting colour and shape. Each piece is built upon in this way until I am vaguely happy with composition, I then re-introduce areas of strata below by gouging and melting the surface with sharp implements and solvent reduction. The process is rather similar to an archaeological dig in which the archaeologist searches for an ancient fresco under layers of coloured earth. I find this endeavour of developing a conservation between layers of the painting albeit challenging, ultimately very exciting.

Hypnopompia is painted on primed MDF panel. The panel is not cradled or framed. The painting will be carefully packaged and will be courier insured. Every attempt will be made to ship the painting within 7 days with the fastest service available.
