The Dormiveglia Series takes its name from an Italian expression, the state of being between sleep and waking. In this series, the artist explores the moment of hovering between dream and reality. The composition is guided by a semi-conscious state of mind, reveals itself, discovered, and elaborated in the course of its execution. Each of the paintings forms a dreamlike drive by the washed colors and the expression of spontaneous forms. The structure of the series seems organic, fluid, and borderless form that fuses colors. Water is the critical element in this series: Using a brush and hand, add and mix colors directly on the wet canvas, where colors blend together and cause chromatic color changes.
