Surreal and Spellbinding Paintings – An Alternate Reality

by Anastasia

When I was small I saw some paintings in my grandma’s house. They were pretty typical — reproductions of paintings of some famous artists. It’s not that I didn’t like them, but only now do I truly understand how many talented artists are really out there. I can find something that’s dear to my heart and I don’t have to buy a painting just because the original artist is famous. There are more options available to us. The surreal and strange paintings here in this collection help us visualize something beyond what we consider “normal” — they allow us to imagine alternate realities, dreams, and even nightmares. The artists use different techniques and mediums, and some of the works rather remind me of illustrations or 3D graphic design work. Still, I love the diversity and I hope you will enjoy them as well.

I guess I’m not easily “spellbound”. Acid and hard drugs inspired Edvard Munch (and it’s V, not W) who was the artist of “The Scream”……..and HE did it in lala land.

Because Munch would totally have been tripping on something on something that wasn’t even invented until two after his death. Even if acid were a hard drug, which it isn’t, that doesn’t make the works any less spell binding.

The first painting by David McDowell makes me think of the Poubelle Twins. Skull bras would be just their thing.
Excellent collection all round.

The surreal paintings I had so far never seen. I wish I had seen these works earlier while I was working on my Ph. D on an American poet Mark Strand who is influenced by Surrealism. I can now clearly understand the elusive nature of Strand’s poetry.
