The Dreamer is a work that recalls the routine of hotels, including the towel, the lounger and the pool exercises. Animated side by side these larger than life men of leisure push up against the water as they are instructed to turn and thrust through the water while the sun pours over them. These figures are riddled with unresolved faces that appear to float in between them on the water. Singh’s main subjects in the water appear to be replicas of each other.
