"Awakening", last piece in my series of paintings about sleeping. My attempt to understand better stages of my sleep, the relationship between external and internal worlds, as well as how they transform after going through the prism of emotions and everyday experiences. Here is the moment where surrealistic dreaming world is merging with the real one. That microsecond when I already woke up, but the dream is not letting me go. The moment when isolated world that my brain has created was interrupted by awakening, which is erasing everything on its way, so I won't come back there again. I won't come back to the world I've created, it was one way journey. Full of mystery and unknown. Everything what I was left with is just aftertaste of semething that I don't even remember. So I tried to analyze my emotions and reflect them on this painting.
