leave a comment Insomnia or Nocturnal Awakening


This picture is an allegorical overview of a very common neurotic disorder. Insomnia is a condition when you have trouble either falling or staying asleep or are unable to get quality sleep. Insomniacs typically complain of their mind constantly racing; it is difficult for them to have mind rest even for a short period of time. For people with overactive minds it becomes even more of a problem. Insomnia can be caused by a number of reasons and is generally classified as being transient (brief and mildly affecting a person), acute (short-term, with major side-effects), and chronic (long-term and severe). We have all experienced some degree of insomnia at one point of our lives or the other, whether it was grieving over the loss of the loved one, as a result of our depressive moods or just being nervous before an important upcoming event. The severity of the symptoms depends not only on the underlying reason preceding our insomnia, but also on our mental and physical health, as well as on our personality profile.

Unfortunately, at a certain point our age factor kicks in: an ability to sleep for longer periods wears off with time, although the amount of sleep required in order to feel well-rested remains the same. Statistics shows that around 23% of the general North American population is affected by insomnia in its long-term severe form.

A constant tussle with insomnia in this image has not been very successful: a crumbling down Coliseum as a personification of a gigantic throbbing headache cannot be a good sign. Hopefully, you don’t recognize your sleepless nights in this picture.

Is the main building the Colosseum in Rome? It actually reminds me of Caligula's destruction of Rome for his own Glory and power. Rome is crumbeling but he still see's himself as a God among men. I Love George Gries work, it makes your mind wander...

I'm a musician from America and I'm curious about your Insomnia Artwork painting. I'm inquiring about use of the artwork for an album of mine. Please contact me if possible. Thank you.

Guillaume / Nov 26th

On this peaceful and quiet night, the light is still on, and the mind can't find rest. Alone in the middle of the sea, this old castle of thoughts remains, and the moon is watching over, restless as ever. "Insomnia" was really interesting to watch.

Raphael / United States / Nov 24th

I'm baffled by the quality and realism of all your work. I was wondering what type of program or software do you use? I'm interested in trying at this as a hobby. Can you help?

Eti / Georgia / Nov 22nd

I think that George is a great neo surrealist artist...this one is very emotional...
