High Quality Surrealist Coastal Scene
This other-worldly landscape is undoubtedly influenced Salvador Dali's most famous work, The Persistence of Memory (1931), with the most apparent parallels being the dreamlike reinvention of a coastal setting, and the remarkably precise technique, which Dali himself called 'the usual paralysing tricks of eye-fooling'. This painting, however, has its own unique exploration of surrealism. Using wonderfully vibrant, saturated colours, the artist depicts a paradisiacal beach with tranquil blue waters, golden sand and pink clouds. The mysterious spherical and orb-like objects are the focus of this ethereal scene - appearing to be manmade objects, with their circular forms perhaps tying in themes of infinity and the totality of time - a clear echo of Dali's work. The lack of distinction between night and day further feeds into this theme; an artistic exploration of concepts that are difficult for our conscious minds to comprehend.
