The secret of course,is to look NOT at the pictures,but to look BEYOND the pictures and feel the freedom of mind!
Some words about Surrealism:
Surrealism is a cultural movement and artistic style that was founded in 1924 by Andre Breton a trained psychiatrist, along with French poets Louis Aragon (1897–1982), Paul Eluard (1895–1952), and Philippe Soupault (1897–1990)
Surrealism style uses visual imagery from the subconscious mind to create art without the intention of logical comprehensibility.
The movement was begun primarily in Europe, centered in Paris, and attracted many of the members of the Dada community.Influenced by the psychoanalytical work of Freud and Jung,there are similarities between the Surrealist movement and the Symbolist movement of the late 19th century.Some of the greatest artists of the 20th century became involved in the Surrealist movement,and the group included Giorgio de Chirico, Man Ray, Rene Magritte, and many others.
The Surrealist movement eventually spread across the globe,and has influenced artistic endeavors from painting and sculpture to pop music and film directing.
The greatest known Surrealist artist,is the world famous,Salvador Dali.
Some famous quotes about Surrealism:
Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.
Surrealism had a great effect on me because then I realised that the imagery in my mind wasn't insanity. Surrealism to me is reality.
Surrealism is merely the reflection of the death process.It is one of the manifestations of a life becoming extinct,a virus which quickens the inevitable end.
Henry Miller,The Cosmological Eye
Till next week be creative and don't forget:"A day without art is like a day without life."
