Surreal

Most of my compositions depart from reality in some aspect: alien colors, fugitives from gravity, or a general incongruity. Here, I’ve selected the works that are most inspired by the surrealist art movement that, from the 1920s to 1960s, explored the irrational nature of the mind. One of the first times my interest in art was piqued was the opportunity to take a surrealism art history class in high school. A visiting professor from the nearby university taught us for a semester. I did my report on Salvador Dali, at the time, my favorite artist — and an influence for the first two years of art school. Although you won’t find any melting clocks here, you will notice bizarre irregularities that make the images seem like hallucinations from the subconscious.
