Surrealism Gallery


My surrealistic oil paintings usually deal with themes that come to me in my dreams. "Surrealism" is in fact "on realism", meaning more than the rational or logical. Therefore most of my scenes are surreal insofar as they seem like fantastic, unreal, dream-like visions. Many of the elements I use in my surreal scenes come from the everyday objects and people around me, and as I compose them on the canvas, I myself am not all that aware of a rational or logical way of thinking. Thus surrealism stems partly from an automatic state of mind or from the "stream of consciousness".
