“Surrealism: An archaic term. Formerly an art movement. No longer distinguishable from everyday life.” —Brad Holland

Whether we dream it up on a bed of nails or a bed of roses, what we perceive may be just that, a dream.

“One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.” —Salvador Dalí 

Whether it’s a sweet dream or a thorny one, depends upon the metaphors, symbols, myths we choose to live by.

“If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream.” —René Magritte

Idling on the frontier of night and day, hovering between yawning and dawning, we glimpse the metaphoric mindscape.

“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” —Henry David Thoreau

'Sir Real' 5Adrift in the symbolic realm of awareness, figurative and literal images fit together.  

“It has never been my object to record my dreams, just the determination to realize them.” Man Ray

Here we show what they know, who stretch the canvas.

“Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.” Luis Bunuel 

We reveal what they conceal, who mix the palette.

“I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.”Joan Miro

We perceive what they believe, who pull reality out of a hat.

“Are you really sure that a floor can’t also be a ceiling?”—M. C. Escher

On the cusp of snoring and soaring, we tip our hat to ‘Sir Real.’

“God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.”Pablo Picasso

We flip our lid to the masters of the metaphoric mindscape. 

“In a dream it’s typical not to be rational.” –Lohn Forbes Nash, Jr.

Long may they illuminate our dreams!

“Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art.”Don Miguel Ruiz
