falling awake

Artist Maria Britton paints on floral bed sheets - ones worn and faded from years of sleeping and washing.

The bed, as she says, is a place where one both experiences and escapes reality - a physical link between dream and awake. Using pieces of bedding as her canvas, Britton seeks to depict sleep's ability to disorientate by disrupting and restructuring the floral patterned backgrounds.

Very cool.
