"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."
The start of our next round of
The Nibblefest Art Contest
begins in a few days!
(on the 20th)
The theme for JUNE 2015 is....:
Surrealism [suh-ree-uh-liz-uh m]:
"A style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th century, stressing the subconscious or nonrational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects, unexpected juxtapositions, etc."
"Surrealism is destructive,
but it destroys only what it considers
to be shackles limiting our vision."
"For me, surrealism is in my blood;
it's not an effort."
"Hyper-realism can create an atmosphere of surrealism
because nobody sees the world in such detail."
"Surrealism was a perception of reality
over which reason was denied the opportunity
to exercise confining restrictions...."

"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..."
