Do you know that moment when you go to bed and you realize you are falling asleep? That kind of in-between-point where you’re still awake yet your mind is no longer bothering you with thoughts and instead filled with shapes and images you do not control?
I’m not sure if this sounds familiar at all, but for me, that moment comes to mind when I stare at these delightful, magical works by Australian artist Gillian Warden. The first time her paintings crossed my eye was love at first sight, as a lovely sense of calmness overwhelmed me. Her creatures are portrayed in such a beautiful dream-like style. And even though their surroundings are somewhat blurry, their expressions are incredibly powerful. Gillian Warden’s paintings offer a glimpse into a world that is different from that of ours and easily lets us drift off to our imagination. Simply breathtaking.
