Endymion’s Dream

Painting: oil on canvas






This project was inspired by the ancient Greek myth of Selene and Endymion. Selena is a radiant goddess, doomed to love the beautiful Endymion who is endured in eternal sleep. The young man was cursed by Zeus and doomed to sleep in the deep grotto of Mount Latma in Caria. Having just once glanced at the sleeping Endymion, the Goddess lost her peace. Since then, she goes down to the grotto every day and utters words of love. Endymion hears them, but is enchanted by Hypnosis, unable to lift his eyelids and respond to her affections.

The myth itself exists in different versions, but the main plot about the eternal sleep of the young man and the ardent feelings of Selena remains unchanged.

The works contemplate the ambivalence of Cosmos: the space in which life arises and dies.

People can’t live in the Space without protection. For them, this element can become destructive, just like a man and a woman, involved in an intense relationship, can form either destructive or creative environments for each other.

Duality is expressed in the geometric construction of the composition: the restriction of the color palette (the use of predominantly black and white scale), the sharp division of the canvas. 

The paintings deny the system of coordinates of a virtual space. The sense of ”weightlessness” places the viewer in the imagined Space. The only point of reference for perception becomes and remains the plane of the canvas.
