On lucid dreaming and gallery portraits

" A Gallery Portrait is not just the anecdotic depiction of a private collection, it is also, in its play of succeeding reflections and in the near-magical charm that these increasingly minuscule repetitions create, a work of art which tips us into its own oneiric universe where its power of seduction has been amplified to an infinite degree and where the agonizing precision of the medium, far from being an end in itself, suddenly opens out into the vertiginous spirituality of the Eternal Return."

Surprised by an esquisite succession of straight foreward facades bathed in a magic winter afternoon sun, Sam Renseiw proceeded to capture the reflections, further adding some interior spaces encompassing a performative ritual.

Brick, mortar, human aspiration, dreams. I love winter sights and spaces, which may never be exhausted. Thanks for remixing my song as well!
