Wide Awake

This painting depicts a figure lying in bed in a dark room. Red light streams through the window and the figure is unable to sleep as evidenced by their open, glowing eyes. The colors vibrate with bright red lines, delineating objects in the space.

Chase Biado uses a highly saturated palette to paint fantasy beings that wander dreamlike spaces—an imagined world that combines fantasy and daily life. Biado's compositions realign the axis of beauty and ugliness, replacing the human figure with goblins and rat people that have full interior lives. The artist employs vibratory lines and rhythmic mark-making to render the picture plane a psychological space.
