"I created the piece partially in inversion so that the E.T. figure feels like a familiar dream. I wanted to recreate what it feels like to wake up from an exciting dream but to only grasp incoherent bits and pieces of it because the conscious mind is unable to decipher the nonlinear distorted timeline of events. The concept formed organically from a rough sketch to the finish. I didn't know exactly what this dream was going to be about until the image started to form in color. It went through many changes during the painting stage, as the story unfolded. While I think the relationship between the characters in the piece is all open to interpretation, the idea is that this is a place that exists in one's subconscious where they can access and experience multiple parallel dimensions at once. I named this particular place Germia, a word that my mind repeated during the construction of the piece." - Ana Bagayan

"My work is inspired by the metaphysical- E.T.'s, spirits, ghosts, inter-dimensional space creatures, alternate realities, anything that hints at the idea that we are just a small part of the unimaginably vast universe. Some of my UFO and E.T. themed works are based on hypnosis sessions of people who believed they had been abducted by aliens and other accounts of mass UFO sightings from around the world. I’ve created human/alien hybrid creatures based on the experiences these people described. All of the works, I feel incorporate the inherent beauty of interpreting both the known and unknown.
I was born in Yerevan, Armenia and earned a BFA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. I currently live and work in Los Angeles, CA with my husband, two dogs, and fish named Masquerade." - Ana Bagayan
