About the artwork
ONEIROS stems from the Greek word for dreams. This project evokes a journey through space. With ONEIROS, the artist allows our minds to wander into unknown lands inspired by the cosmos and our dreamworlds. This series of works aims to represent a wild and spatial nature, which is akin to the Sublime–somewhere between fear and fascination. The viewer is confronted with their imagination; it’s an evasion from the boundaries of the physical world, drifting into a black hole where anything can happen, where the subconscious is waiting to let go and be part of this intergalactic adventure.
