Inspired by Paul Gauguin, Te Rerioa (The Dream), 1897.
We chose this painting because it is mysterious. The whole idea of the painting being a dream appealed to us because the subjects of the painting are uncertain – the artist didn’t tell us what the dream is so it leaves us with a feeling of curiosity. He does present us with the possibilities and that’s what we have chosen to animate.
The artist, Paul Gauguin had a very interesting and adventurous life style, painting not only in France but also in many other places, such as Tahiti, where Te Rerioa is set. The main element of the painting that we liked most was the fact that it really makes the viewer think deeply about what is happening in the scene.
