The Inspiration from Dreams & Visions Art Competition has been a spectacular celebration of your creative force. Since we opened the competition to submissions in July 2022, we received an INCREDIBLE response from you. Entries of all kinds of artwork, from paintings and drawings to collage, embroidery, photography and film, came flooding in from all across the world. We love every single submission, but our judges had to choose... and today we announce the winner, runner-up, judges' choices and shortlisted artists from our 2022 Inspiration from Dreams & Visions Art Competition! 

Our winner

Catherine Garrigue with Dream Series: Songe d'une nuit profonde aux silences de virginité (Dream of a deep night with the silences of virginity), 2022, 65 x 50cm, blue ink on kraft coloured paper

Catherine says: "Created especially for the competition. I tried to translate as well as possible the notion that I have of the "dream" and of my peregrinations in the imagination which nourish my life. There are many faces that intertwine in the midst of birds, plants and sometimes ghostly apparitions. Everything comes together in a whirling rhythm close to vertigo. Because both dreams and visions play a subtle game of hide and seek with reality. The density of the details translates the singularity of the dream which imposes itself randomly on our unconsciousness which has become porous to all the visionary rantings.... Marvellous state in which no desired intervention intervenes in the rhythm of the images. In conclusion, in these graphic studies, I wanted to translate an eradication of any logical contingency. Traveling in the imagination as an act of his supreme freedom finally free."

Congratulations, Catherine!
