Title of Work:     A Dream is Born Series:  A Garden of Dreams
Medium:             Acrylics on canvas, 1m x 1,5 m
Date Created:    02/23/2008

In "DREAMS," Psyche, pulls up every stimulus that becomes a revealing answer for her and expresses it visually by an abstract but dreamy form, like an illustrated proposal of old oracles of Pythia. So, Psyche meditates through and with her soul inspired by her own dreams, her own personal symbolisms and answers, that like living images, like guardian angels help her to decide, to hope, to see the invisible, to recognize the familiar and make known the unknown, in her attempt to exorcise fear and meet the catharsis, while at the same time welcomes the next life challenges.

As if in scenery of a fairytale, the archetype image of this new series of mine unfolds in Delphi, where near a spring by the sanctuary of the oracle, Psyche appears.
We meet her mentally, while she admires the magic of nature and wonders:

"Is this beauty I live a dream?" admits to tenderly smiling to the breeze that keeps her company whispering,

"But if what I experience is a dream, what is then what I see when am I sleeping?"
This is how the conversation with her dreams starts.

My new painting series, entitled "A GARDEN OF DREAMS", is a visual narration of the dynamic, transformational motion of Psyche in dreams, as well as a continuation of the third part of my Trilogy "ABOUT SOUL", DREAMS.

In this series, my heroine Psyche, meanders happily through a dreamy garden, full of blossoms, where colorful visions of fragrant flowers bring back beautiful memories of her childhood. The colorful dreams swirl and dance, reshaping themselves like butterflies in the wind and spirits that spread the joy of love.

For Psyche, this wandering is a renewed breath of love and tenderness...a melody emanating from the garden that soothes and whispers to her soul, like a lullaby that brings peace to the shadows in her mind.
She chooses intuitively to return to the delightful memories of her childhood to reclaim her pure smile once again – fulfilling her need for balance and warmth in a world full of uncertainty.

The paintings in the series of "A GARDEN OF DREAMS" are inspired by the steps of self-knowledge and self-development that our subconscious offers us through the symbolism and illusions of our dreams.

You are invited to wander and weave through my images and decode that game of fantasy, not only the dreams of Psyche, but from within your own unique dreams as well!

The "DREAMS" - the last part of my trilogy "ABOUT SOUL" is dedicated to:

- all those who believe and are inspired by dreams in their sleeping and their real life,

- all those who believe that dreams can become reality when you put your heart and soul into them, and,

- all who respect not only their own dreams, but also the dreams of others, helping both themselves and others to make them reality, adding enormously to the creation of a new, flourishing world that gives real value to our human existence.
