Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Dominique Appia is a Swiss painter based in Geneva. His paintings depict imaginative scenarios of cities, landscapes and interiors where familiar elements are juxtaposed as in a dream. A cathedral becomes a railway station, the Mediterranean gushes up from the Paris Metro, and a room with disappearing children is invaded by different world environments. 'Entre les trous de la memoire', literally 'Between the holes in the memory' -Entre les Trous de la Memoire - is the best known image by this intriguing and little-known artist.

His dreamlike paintings are often mistaken for the work of Salvador Dalí.
