  • About the work

Oil on canvas

The artwork made part form the solo show ONIRIX. ONIRIX is a project about how we remember and interpret our own dreams. Nine years ago the artist has three dreams in three different nights. He paint this dreams in three parts, each part having three sequences. The results is the nine paintings, every panting representing a scene from the three dreams. Each painting has attached a text written by the artist like in a screen play.

Scene V - The Doorless Bar - FM

I entered the doorless bar and the small-looking exterior led into a spacious interior. The chairs laying upside-down on the round tables, the freshly clean floors and bar and the fact that the lights were off; all indicated that the bar had recently been closed. I started to look around for a telephone, but I soon got lost in wonder looking at the whole-wall fresco that perfectly depicted the view from outside. I could not understand how it was made, because as I stood in the doorway, looking at the fresco, then to the view outside and moving my sight in all directions, all the lines from the road, the mountains, everything aligned perfectly, every single time. While I was studying this phenomenon, I noticed a very small black dot, moving from the darkest part of the mural towards the other side of the painted sky, on the right. It was getting bigger as it was very slowly advancing, like it was coming from somewhere behind those mountains. But that was even more puzzling, because the dot appeared like it was painted on the wall as well. At one point the dot was big enough or near enough to be able to distinguish what it was. But what I saw was utterly perplexing: a white-winged half sleeping lion was cruising through the icy painted sky.
