Surrealism And One Point Perspective
Surrealism creates art in which the impossible becomes “real” through a disparity (difference) of what we see and what we know about reality!
Surrealism Often puts two contrasting things together. This is called juxtaposition. Juxtaposition: Two contrasting things put together
What do Surrealist paintings often have? Dali Magritte Things that don’t make sense together…(juxtap osition) Realism to make things appear to be true that could never be true in real life. Dali and Magritte often used exaggerated size to make things look like they don’t belong.
Irony: the technique of making something opposite of what the word really means. What is the irony here?
Perspective: The illusion of space in a work of art What is in the background, middle ground, and foreground of the painting? Where is the horizon line and vanishing point?
What creates the illusion of space in this artwork? Can you identify what is “wrong” with this picture?
In addition to disparities in reality, Surrealist often took inspiration from dreams. They were interested in exploring the subconscious, and for this reason they worked closely with Sigmund Freud (the father of modern psychology).
“Surrealism is not a style. It is the cry of a mind turning back on itself.”-Antonin Artaud
Is there a vanishing point here? What are some ways to find it? Name some unusual aspects of this room and its furniture.
Where would the vanishing point from this painting be located? Do you think that one point perspective helps this picture seem more real?
Name some of the “everyday” objects you find in this artwork…
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Now your turn: You may use a dream or strange fantasy as inspiration. Pick a scene or place where the fantasy takes place. You must draw it in 1 point. So the picture might include a strange building, a weird street, or an odd room. You should draw an element that does not traditionally belong in your scene. A giant animal, a huge object, a weird figure, things that fly, etc. You must do this using COLLAGE. Things might be upside down, sideways, or objects can be used in an unusual way. You may use any medium to complete this project: watercolor, pencil, marker, pastel, or chalk.
