“Dreams are not just messages (coded messages, at that), but are also an aesthetic activity, a game of the imagination that has its own value. Dreams are proof that fantasies - emotional immersion in the visualization of events that have never and may never occur - are one of the profoundest necessities for human life. The characters that come from my imagination are my own possibilities, those that never came to bear, or those still on my horizon.”

In this exhibition, inspired by Ancient Greek myths and legends, Skount presents a reality, drawing a relatively cohesive oneiric spectrum with mythology. Recounting a pictorial discourse by which we enter into a world of dreams, created to explain the universe, the origin of the world, natural phenomena and anything for which there is no simple explanation. Through this new body of work on canvas and paper, Skount investigates this complex philosophical world full of arguments about the nature, properties, causes and effects of natural things, especially the human being and the universe.

En esta exposición, inspirado por mitos y leyendas de la antigua Grecia, Skount nos presenta una realidad, dibujando un espectro onírico relativamente cohesionado con la mitología.
Relatando así un discurso pictórico por el cual nos introduce en un mundo de sueños, creados para explicar el universo, el origen del mundo, los fenómenos naturales y cualquier cosa para la que no haya una explicación simple.
Ya que los sueños no son solo un mensaje (eventualmente un mensaje cifrado), sino también una actividad estética, un juego de la imaginación que representa un valor en sí mismo. El sueño es una prueba de que la fantasía, la ensoñación referida a lo que no ha sucedido, sucede o sucederá, es una de las más profundas necesidades del ser humano. Esta es la raíz de la traicionera peligrosidad del sueño, y tras la cual Skount investiga en un complejo mundo filosófico, lleno de razonamientos sobre la esencia, las propiedades, las causas y los efectos de las cosas naturales, especialmente del ser humano y el universo.
