DREAMSCAPES 
Contemporary Imaginary Realism
6th Edition

9 November 2017 | 23 February 2018
Opening: 9 November, 19.00

Tannpapier, Fabrikstr. 20, A-4050, Traun, Austria

On 9 November 2017 the 6th edition of the international Dreamscapes exhibition will be opened at “Trierenberg Art Traun”, in Austria. For three months there will be works of art on display created by more than 50 contemporary masters, representing Imaginary Realism from all across the globe. During the opening of this Dreamscapes exhibition, the 6th edition of the new Dreamscapes book will be presented as well.

This 6th edition - Dreamscapes– which contains a selection of works by more than seventy artists from around the world, is a milestone in the history of Imaginary Realism, which will thus be shown in all its splendor. With exhibitions, in Austria, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands complete this ambitious project, which will be brought to a conclusion in 2019 in a final exhibition in Viechtach. The initiator and organizer from the very beginning is Marcel Salome. Manifesting admirable drive, great organizational talent and a lucid, broad vision of the quality of contemporary artistic expression, he brings Imaginary Realism prominently out into the limelight. In this pursuit, he focuses exclusively on contemporary artists with a highly idiosyncratic character. While granting a podium to laureate masters, he also gives an opportunity to less well-known and young, up-and-coming talents to present themselves and their work. Dreamscapes is unique because it shows beside paintings also many sculptures and glass objects.

Under the collective name of Imaginary Realism Dreamscapes unites artistic trends such as Magic Realism, Fantastic Realism, Surrealism and Symbolism and brings them to the notice of the world through various projects. In the past three decades Imaginary Realism has produced great artists from different continents who have started working together internationally not only from a jointly felt need to work in this imaginary style, but also because of an unmistakable congeniality and solidarity. This cooperation has resulted in high-profile Dreamscapes group exhibitions led by artists and representatives of the imaginary style. During these Dreamscapes exhibitions, works by more than 50 international artists may be admired, many of whom display their work in Europe for the first time or show works of art that are usually acquired by private collectors straight away and thus remain invisible for the general public.

Imaginary representations and the traditional painting and sculpting techniques have left a distinct impression and deep appreciation in art history for the work by old masters like Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Breughel, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Leonardo da Vinci, Pre-Raphaelites, Gustave Moreau, Salvador Dalí, René Magritte and Paul Delvaux. These mostly metaphysical and surrealistic depictions of the world have fascinated mankind ever since Greek antiquity and the age of the Egyptians. They are natural phenomena that usually manifest themselves in dreams and from the subconscious, serving as a source of inspiration for many artists. Through the ages the grand masters have been followed by strong successors: artists who also draw inspiration from metaphysics, philosophy, literature and the symbolism of the metaphysical world. Like their predecessors, who endeavored to capture the magic of reality, the artists participating in Dreamscapes unbridle their fantasy to today’s world. The Dreamscapes exhibition presents the masters of the future, who have exchanged the bohemian life for a world of global appreciation and recognition.
