Ambien Guardian @ REM Phase

Ambien Guardian @ REM Phase Painting By Andrew Conti

Ambien Guardian @ REM Phase, Acrylic on Canvas, 18″ x 14″, 2015

The painting as amulet, the painting as guardian, the painting as household icon. A sentinel to the heart and mind. She watches over you while you sleep, a Foo Dog, a guardian lion at the gates of your closed eyes. Made of dreams, made of Zolpidem and peace, and there to hold off the monsters of nightmares and anxiety. A guide for the lost insomniac in the dark hours of the night.
