Surrealism:• A artistic style that uses visual imagery from the subconscious mind to create art without the intention of logical comprehensibility• The artistic style of surrealism began as an official movement shortly after the end of the first world war. In its infancy, it was a literary movement, but soon found its greatest expression in the visual arts.• Surrealism was a means of reuniting conscious and unconscious realms of experience so completely that the world of dream and fantasy would be joined to the everyday rational world in "an absolute reality, a surreality."In general, the style focuses on psychological states which resemble dreams and fantasy.
• The major Surrealist painters were Jean Arp, Max Ernst, André Masson, René Magritte, Yves Tanguy, Salvador Dalí, Pierre Roy, Paul Delvaux, and Joan Miró and Giorgio de Chirico.
David Salle• David Salle (born 1952) is an American painter and leading contemporary figurative artist.• Salle was born in Norman, Oklahoma. He earned a BFA and MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, where he studied with John Baldessari. Salle’s work first came to public attention in New York in the early 1980s.• His paintings comprise what appeared to be randomly juxtaposed images, or images painted on top of each other with deliberately ham- fisted paint handling. His subject matter tended toward the popular, the gratuitous, and the pornographic, and was combined in ways that appeared deliberately incomprehensible. His work was called "cynical", "calculating", and "cold".• In the next few years he and his contemporaries — termed postmodern — achieved a succès de scandale with their work. He also turned his hand to set and costume design, photography, and directing mainstream cinema.
