A series of large-scale paintings, part of my first solo exhibition at the Astrolavos - Dexameni Gallery in Athens in November 2008.


The exhibition was divided into two parts that came in parallel and contradiction. The first one was of large-scale paintings, and the second one was of small scale mixed media collages on canvas regardings children's playing, toys but also the bittersweet situations from which children are called to tremain untouched. The exhibition raises to the viewer questions as: "What are the dreams of a child who lacks food and drinking water and what are the dream of a child of the so-called developed world?" but also "Do children stop dreaming?", "Do we, adults understand the power of the dream?"
