About the Artwork:

“I’ve always had visions of octopuses in strange places. They usually happen when I’m overtired, or when I’m in a dimly lit room with a lot of clutter, I’ll see a brief glimpse of an octopus floating near a ceiling, or tentacles from behind the bookcase. No, it’s not a hallucination, it’s that thing that happens when you can’t see with perfect clarity, so your mind fills in the gaps. I guess my overactive imagination just happens to fill in those gaps with creatures from the deep. The title, Nautical Twilight refers to the term that sailors used for the time of day when the sun had gone down, but they could still navigate with limited visibility of the horizon and the stars.” – Laura Thipphawong
