Twelve emerging contemporary artists from the international art scene will take part in a new exhibition at the Aphrodite Amathusia Cultural Centre in Limassol. Taking place between October 14 and 31, the Dream on Dreamer exhibition at the Riana Raouna Gallery unifies creatives from Cyprus and abroad.
The participating artists come from all corners of the world and include Besher Koushaji (Syria), Botond Gagyi (Romania), Ebuka P Agudiegwu (Nigeria), Edward Hongyi Jia (UK/China), Eugenia Cuellar (Spain), Henry Glover (UK), Jione Choi (UK/S. Korea), K Blick (UK/S. Korea), Lara Rottinghaus (Germany), Matete Martini (Italy), Marina Olympios (Cyprus), and Taedong Lee (S. Korea).
Through 25 paintings, the exhibition aims to provide an aesthetic experience to the viewer and present the absolute ‘now’ in contemporary painting. Dream on Dreamer consists of poetic landscapes with dominant reference to the sea, portraits and abstract works which reflect the power of art in stimulating imagination, reflection and pleasure.
According to the gallery’s founder and exhibition curator Riana Raouna: “Each work individually but also the combination of works in the gallery space, allow the viewer to let go of the every day and gain a new understanding of reality, where everything is possible.”
Dream on Dreamer is the gallery’s second exhibition taking place in Cyprus. Riana explains: “We are proud to be showing the work of such exciting artists for the second time in Cyprus because we wish to allow art lovers and collectors to0 experience what is happening in painting today, without having to travel abroad. The exhibited artists are among the elite of emerging international talents and based on their career trajectory, some of them are expected to become the big names of tomorrow.”
