Surrealist strategies

  1. 1. SURREALISM is a literary and artistic movement that developed between 1910 and 1920’s. Artists and poets plumbed the subconscious mind and dream imagery, heavily influenced by the psychological studies of Sigmund Freud. Rene Magritte, ‘Le Portrait’, 1935. MOMA, NYC
  2. 2. "My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.” René Magritte
  3. 3. His paintings are expressive for their juxtaposition of common objects, often altered in scale, and placed in absurd settings. Magritte is deeply interested in the process of thought, and his paintings tend to raise the awareness of the viewer to their own thought processes.
  4. 4. Surrealistic Techniques -       “How to make the ordinary look extraordinary” Scale Levitation Juxtaposition Dislocation Transparency Transformation
