About the Artwork:
“I painted ‘Dreamscape’ after just finishing work for my solo show. For months I had been working on the same pieces and because I was travelling while working on my show, everything was planned out ahead of time. After I was finished, I felt like I could experiment and create something on a whim and it was refreshing to not know what the outcome would be. I wanted to do the opposite of what I normally would paint, choosing flat color combinations instead of a detailed background.” – Ana Bagayan

My work is inspired by the metaphysical – E.T.s, aliens, spirits, ghosts, intergalactic space creatures, ethereal beings, anything that hints at the idea that we are just a small part of the unimaginably vast Universe.
