“I love communities and I love people. I love to offer beauty to people in their everyday lives. Dreaming is a portrait of a young woman but it could be a portrait of any one of us."
Gray is pleased to announce the unveiling of Jaume Plensa's latest public work, Dreaming. Located at the Richmond-Adelaide Centre in Toronto’s Financial District and organized by Oxford Properties Group, the monumental sculpture transforms the downtown plaza and stretches over three stories high. In a recent video interview, Plensa expands on the conceptualization and construction of the work.
Dreaming exemplifies Plensa’s aptitude for combining large-scale public art installation with sculpture. Compelling in scale and structure, Plensa's cast stone portrait captures its subject in a moment of stillness, evoking a sense of inner-tranquility and expressing the beauty in humanity. An artist with a wide international presence, Plensa's other public sculpture can be found in top metropolitan cities such as New York, London, Singapore, Chicago, Barcelona, and Tokyo.
