Jason Phu i had a nap and had a nightmare, when i woke up i was still hungry

ink and acrylic on linen

186.5 x 135.5 cm

i closed my eyes for a moment and fell into a slumber in the summer heat.

i had a terrible dream.

when i woke, my mouth was a desert of my own putrid saliva. when i woke, i had a terrible thirst.
