Happy Sleepy won the competition for the 2016 Front Entrance Installation at The Artist Project.

The installation consists of two paintings, one on each of the two walls, backed by vinyl banners that seamlessly cover the entire walls.

The work is from our ongoing Crystal Kings project and paintings and animations from the series had been first exhibited in the solo show Let’s Glow at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery in 2012.

The two paintings proposed for the Artist Project were completed in 2013 and the images for the vinyl banners are brand new for this exhibition.

Each wall will have on it one painting that is 36” wide and 48” tall, and 3” inches deep. The painting continues from the front, down the side of the  painting edge, and join up with the wall figures as the vinyl covers the whole wall. The paintings will seem to flow out and infect the wall with the will to grow into crystals.
