My Surrealism Experiment

Twentieth century surrealist painter Salvador Dali has been an inspiration of mine since the first time I laid eyes on his 1931 The Persistence of Memory (aka the melting clocks) in middle school. I remember learning that, in the piece, he portrayed the "collapse of our notions of a fixed cosmic order". He challenged the thought that a subject must be painted a certain way. And he had a pet anteater for pete's sake! Wonderfully bizarre.

So I decided to experiment with my own brand of surrealist painting, tame as it may be. Here are the results painted on skinny canvases :

Pollinate
oil on canvas
10 in. x 18 in.


Hydrate
