Stylistic Elements

How do the stylistic elements of my paintings differ from those of other surrealists, what are their characteristics?

Perhaps the strong emphasis on what is hollow, paper-thin, fragile, unstable; the questioning of matter, over and over again.

As if what counted was to make harmony and beauty shine forth once more among the waste products of a dissolving world.

The desire for doom?


Taking note of impermanence.
