Hello there. Thanks for visiting my web!
My show “Dremscapes” at Geleria pf in Poznan, Poland has finished last month, and I would like to thank everyone who helped the
show and came to see my exhibition! Here is a link to an article for the show ( in Polish ); link here
I liked this article a lot, and I’m surprised that someone has such a rich sensitivity to feel and read my work deeply…
I cannot understand Polish language, so I used this free translation website, trying to understand the article; http://www.poltran.com I hope that my understanding about the article is correct since this translation function is not perfect… anyway, I appreciate the article by the author.
Another article about the show has been published in the Polish photo magazine, “Biuletyn Fotograficzny” (July /August issue). Here is the wesite of the magazine; http://www.biuletynfotograficzny.pl/?link=main
( you can only see the index page ).

Many interesting artists in various medium of visual arts will be joining in this group show, so I eow since I live far a way, but if you live in / around Ashiya or plan to come to xpect that the show will be a really interesting one! Besides, a-space newnewwill be closing for a while after this show, so please don’t miss the show! Thanks!
Here in Belgium is so hot this summer. We had some big fireworks in Brussels recently. I love fireworks, and I feel that there is some similarity between fireworks and dreams… they both are extraordinary and ephemeral, but the impression of them could live in our mind forever… Fireworks and Dreams are such “Tricksters” that would make our everyday lives very fresh! If you have no chance to see fireworks, let’s dream of fireworks!
Take care, and hope to see YOU at some of my shows soon!
