About Surrealism

Surrealism is aimed to revolutionise the human experience in art, rejecting a rational vision of life in favour of one that asserted the value of the unconscious and dreams.

Surrealism was an artistic, intellectual, and literary movement led by poet André Breton from 1924 through World War II. The Surrealists sought to overthrow the oppressive rules of modern society by demolishing its backbone of rational thought. To do so, they attempted to tap into the “superior reality” of the subconscious mind. “Completely against the tide,” said Breton, “in a violent reaction against the impoverishment and sterility of thought processes that resulted from centuries of rationalism, we turned toward the marvelous and advocated it unconditionally.

Seasons change

“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”

“Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.” ― Salvador Dali
