We live on a plane of existence that we call real. But that reality can be questioned and then many other realities appear, some even more real than reality itself.
Where is the border between the real and the unreal?
Beyond the closed eyes is a journey in search of a painter who has never existed but whose paintings, described by their creator, have caused the need for his existence. Thanks to this impulse, unsuspected responses will appear, where the real, light, meditation, poetry, beauty, silence, mystery, music… will make an appearance.
