"This image is the first of a series of Alien and Hybrid beings that I've been developing this year. I document them all in my Alien Book, which is sketchbook that I keep with me at all times, including during sleep, so I can document all ideas relating to Extraterrestrial civilizations.
I first started exploring this theme while I was working on my solo show at Thinkspace Gallery. I watch and listen to various things while I paint and my interests greatly influence my work because it is all an extension of my being.
One day, my husband brought a documentary he had downloaded called The Experiencers, which documented hypnosis sessions of people living in different parts of the world who have claimed to have been abducted. What I loved about this film specifically was that the 'experiences' these people were having were mostly positive, rather than the sensationalized version we see in most movies.
From that point, I have been exploring and researching and imagining what some of these lifeforms might look like and what planets they might inhabit. In addition, this lead me to a new outlook on existence and a transformation within myself that is manifesting into my artwork. " - Ana Bagayan
