Hypnagogia 1 is a two-sided painting on transparent synthetic paper. The title, Hypnagogia, references the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep. My work explores movement, energy, turbulence, and gesture. Layers and stripes bend the two-dimensional space into a churning, vibrating composition, referencing things such as parallel realities, topology, subatomic particles, shifting light, and sound waves.
