While most artworks that we encounter in various art institutions represent familiar forms: people, landscapes, everyday objects, there has always been an underlying tradition in the history of art to depict fantastical, dream-like subjects which sometimes verge on the psychedelic (case in point: Hieronymus Bosch?s Garden of Earthly Delights).
A fascination for myths and dreams has always influenced an artist?s narrative and has evolved to include a canvas with unnatural colors and exaggerated forms. Surrealist works, delving into the realm of dreams, produce undulating silhouettes illustrating the the un-illustratable.
While ignoring reality?s proportions, these canvases entertain and perplex. Perhaps visualizing the psyche of their creators, works of the supernatural are the products of an amplified imagination.
