Surrealism – Art That Captures The Imagination
surrealist paintings and canvas artworks from exciting Australian artists – online gallery.
A twentieth-century literary, philosophical and artistic movement that explored the workings of the mind, championing the irrational, the poetic and the revolutionary. Surrealism aims to revolutionise human experience. It balances a rational vision of life with one that asserts the power of the unconscious and dreams. The movement’s artists find magic and strange beauty in the unexpected and the uncanny, the disregarded and the unconventional like dark surrealist art. At the core of their work is the willingness to challenge imposed values and norms, and a search for freedom.
Featured artists: James Willebrant, Ross Wilsmore.
