‘We are asleep, our life is a dream. But we wake up, sometimes, just enough to know that we are dreaming.’ – Wittgenstein

This painting is part of a body of work exploring the liminal state between sleep and wakefulness; a state in which the subconscious is most prominent, and our deepest yearnings and fears come to light.
