RINGKOMPOSITION

Remaining grounded in an identifiable reality, Brussels, the city where Ticca works and lives, the Belgian capital can be recognised as one of the main sources of inspiration for the series. The city of surrealism, of art nouveau, of René Magritte, is evoked by the sinuous and elegant shapes of its maison de maître. These buildings, which often hide a masonic past, are evoked in some of Ticca's paintings, along with their decorative esoteric elements.

Another pivotal focus of his new series is the dream: the living reality of dream. Dreaming is an experience we all live, which we recall, once awake, to varying degrees. Yet, dreams remain subjective, ambiguous, fragmentary, opaque. Dreams are at once fantasised and reliable, merging sacred and profane, magic and reality. It can also be, symbolically, a manifestation of an "elsewhere" in which to believe or be wary of.
