Description of the artwork «Sleeping in a dream»
A work from the "Poetry" series
My love of poetry and painting have merged together. The canvases express the pure emotional association from the lines of poets with the help of paints. Both classics and our contemporaries.
The painting is in association with a poem by Edgar Allan Poe
Let it stay with you
A kiss goodbye!
I'm leaving you,
And I'll tell you now:
You're not wrong about one thing, -
My life was just a dream.
But the dream that lived the dream,
Day or night, she's gone,
Whether as a vision, as a light,
What's in it for me, she's gone.
All that is seen is imagined to me,
Everything is just a dream within a dream.
I'm standing on the beach,
I keep my eye on the storm.
And I hold in my hands
A handful of grains of gold.
How they caress the eye!
How few there are! How they slide
All - between my fingers - down to the wave,
To the lubin - on the mountain for me!
How do I keep them running,
How do you squeeze your hands harder?
Will any of them survive,
Or will the wave take it all?
Or what's visible to me,
Is everything just a dream within a dream?
