Opening reception: Saturday, March 2nd, 6pm - 9pm. Drinks will be provided by our friends at Better Beer and Malocchio.
In this mesmerizing collection, Garant invites you to join the dreamers, the wanderers, and the adventurers as they embark on a journey through the elusive dream realms. Each stroke of the brush serves as a portal, unveiling the surreal narratives of those who dare to explore the mysteries that unfold when the mind surrenders to slumber.
With Garant's signature style of double exposure and optical illusions, the portraits breathe life into the dreamers' tales. Faces become windows to otherworldly experiences, where the subconscious guides you through a visual narrative, blurring the lines between reality and reveries.
