Object, Wilhelm Freddie
Figures at the Seashore, Pablo Picasso 1931
Theater II, Frantisek Muzika 1944
These are other surrealist examples that I was also inspired by. Often times that I see surrealists using body as a part of their subject matter. Bodies are distorted. Parts of body are separated and are connected to other objects which could be seen as metaphor or just for the visual sake. Usually the backgrounds are quite simple because the foreground objects are quite busy enough with unusual objects on the unusual location. I think what's interesting is that in Muzak's piece, there's sense of another dimension through the crack on the background. It suggests the world the dreamy world the artist is portraying and that there's still another dimension of fantasy waiting to be explore behind.
