A blond woman, apparently wearing a nightgown, seems to be fleeing; but from what is she fleeing? Why is she on this street at night? Is she a somnambulist or is it the tall, schematic figure of a bird, with the spread wings, that frightens her? The title of the painting will make it clear. It is a dreamphase, which is called "Rapid Eye Movement". During these rapid eye movements, our dreams are especially intense, and the experiences in the dreams will be once more changed in a surrealistic way, as the bluish, cold light of the streetlamps and the unusual facade of the building implies. The first impression that this painting portrays is a dangerous situation which can be ignored. Acrylic on canvas 100x80 cm, 2010
