Dreams in the Garden: Ramiro Fernandez Saus

9 May - 9 June 2012

The light in Ramiro Fernandez Saus’s paintings has an extraordinary character. By day, it varies from the pale clarity of an equatorial morning to the glow of languid Mediterranean afternoons; at night, from the spotlights cutting through the darkness at the opera, to a bright moon hanging in the sky. Regardless of the light source it has the same effect: transporting the scenes that Ramiro depicts from reality to a dream world of heightened feeling. It is as if the house lights of the theatre are dimmed and we are watching a magical drama played out on the canvases before us.
