Dreams and Imagination: Exploring the World of Eden Gallery Artists' Art

Exploring the World of Dreams in Contemporary Art:

Dreams have fascinated and inspired artists throughout history, from the earliest Egyptian hieroglyphs to the art of ancient Greece and Rome. In modern times, contemporary artists continue to explore the intriguing subject of dreams through a variety of mediums and styles. Three artists represented by the Eden Gallery, Angelo Accardi, Yoel Bennarouche, and Calman Shemi, each bring their unique artistic vision and techniques to this exploration.



Angelo Accardi, the Modern-Day Surrealist:

A celebrated artist is known for his captivating surrealism, Angelo Accardi's paintings depict the vibrant and otherworldly essence of our subconscious minds. By juxtaposing ordinary scenes against the natural and urban surroundings, he creates an atmosphere of whimsy and paradox. Each piece contains numerous layers of meaning and a sense of pandemonium, reminiscent of the nonsensical and disorienting nature of dreams. "Dancing Upside Down" is a prime example of his work, featuring a backdrop that is inverted, giving way to a plethora of conflicting characters, objects, and symbols, including vivid ostriches that enhance the piece's surreal quality.



Yoel Bennarouche, the Mystic:

Marked by vibrant hues, abstract forms, and a poetic and intangible quality, the paintings of Yoel Bennarouche capture the essence of the metaphysical realm. His art delves into the enigmatic and intricate relationship between the tangible and the transcendental, producing visual poetry that sparks contemplation and introspection. By evoking the spiritual and historical world, Bennarouche's creations transport the viewer into a realm of sublime and otherworldly experience. "Douceur Infinie" is a prime example of his work, featuring slumbering visages that merge into a pattern without clear boundaries, mirroring the infinite nature of dreams.



Calman Shemi, the Luminescent:

With a distinct approach to painting, Calman Shemi has the ability to capture the radiant essence of dreams through his unique techniques. He developed two distinctive methods, known as soft and lacquer painting, that allowed him to convey extraordinary sensations onto his canvas. The delicate brushwork in his soft paintings generates a feeling of dimension and tactility, while his lacquer works utilize vivid hues and layers of lacquer to create a glossy and iridescent quality. In "Evening on the City of Truth," he manages to depict an old city in a state of clarity and vibrancy reminiscent of a dream.


The Exploration Continues:

The relationship between dreams, imagination, and art is a fascinating and ongoing exploration. Throughout history, artists have drawn inspiration from their dreams and imaginative visions, resulting in some of the most captivating works of art ever created. The artists represented by the Eden Gallery continue this tradition, bringing their unique perspectives and techniques to the exploration of the subconscious mind.
