"Asleep is about finding comfort in loss. The brown dog on top, had recently passed away. In her lifetime, she was always watching over her sister. This piece aims to show her sister sleeping peacefully as her spirit keeps watch.

Though the piece depicts the comfort and safety of a deep bond between animals, I worked to create a feeling that is human and relatable." - ALEX BAUWENS
