The definition of surrealism is "a style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th century, stressing the subconscious or nonrational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects, unexpected juxtapositions, etc. "(dictionary.com) From a young age I enjoyed the art of Salvador Dali, Magritte, and Giorgio de Chirico; how they were able to take a multitude of images and combine them to create a picture that could grab someones attention and encourage them to analyze how the images work together to communicate a message. I take pride in creating work that has the same effect. My paintings tend to focus on the presets and injustices of society and I do my best to not only convey theses messages with icons and symbols, but also communicate the moods along with them.
