Zach Brown 13 Monsters
Our grasp on reality always seems to be weakest at the transitional state between asleep and awake. We compare death to sleep and imagine that like sleep death will hold dreams. This comparison allows us to populate the afterlife with the cast of our dreams and nightmares. It is this state of transition that lets us peak through the thin veil of reality and peer into the deep void behind it. It is with this in mind that I produced 15 new paintings dealing specifically with this subject matter. These paintings were created on panel using both contemporary and traditional glazing techniques.
