Like Living Within a Dream

Surrealist paintings, focused on the abnormalities and strangeness of dreams. Lucid dreams transformed to paintings. Expanding on the unconscious mind with image juxtaposition and other oddities.

"OOPS!" by Mia Wen-Hsuan Lia is such a great and surreal piece. Paper is given the role of organized chaos and achieves a spatial juxtaposition as a result. It makes me feel as if time was stopped.
"Instant Landscape-garden #3" is a peculiar piece to make the eyes wander. It features shallow water with vases blooming strange objects and animals. To the right is oversized photo of a horse.
"Meditation" is an interesting piece of a floating mountainous abode with humanlike characteristics. Thought bubbles protrude from windows with human body parts in them. I chose this piece because of its contrast with its surroundings.
This piece is cleverly crafted as a bed of rocks and a bed of roses, each with the opposite plaque hanging over the bed. Almost representing a yin-yang’s balance. It’s surreal to see such irony put into a concrete form.
This piece carries a seemingly oversized red sports car with flowers growing out of the fenders. A waterfall proceeds to pour over the door and down to the ocean’s edge below. Zebra heads stand up on both front fenders. I chose this piece because of the juxtaposition within.
The Moor’s Ear is made to appear as a frame with a painting inside. The painting features a large red ball resting atop four trees as well as a horse-like head being carried by four pairs of human legs. A ear sits alone within the frame creating a contrast between the painting and painted frame.

“Good Stones and Bad Stones” features a bad stone held within a jail-like structure, though not entirely whole. There are some good stones floating about above the water with one actually wearing a mask. The personifications of the stones simulate dreamlike qualities.
