Mapping Dreamscape (2018)

This painting came from my experience in a sensory depravation or "float" tank. In this womb-like environment consciousness and the dreamworld merge, and time and space collapse. It seems like it could be the closest parallel to what a caterpillar experiences in its cocoon as completely transforms to become a butterfly. It is also the space where we can meet our ancestors and descendants and see ourselves as a spiraling continuum.
