About this artwork
The painting shows Ectoplasm - a hypothetical form of 'dense bio-energy,' a protoplasmic substance, imitated by a medium, explains artist Krzysztof Iwin. It is the material of which ghosts are composed. During spiritual sessions, ectoplasm is secreted by some living organisms. A woman sits back with her arms loosely crossed on her lap. She appears to be asleep while ghostly figures seep through her lips and into a drawer on the side. Smaller beings watch the episode as it unfolds before their eyes.
