Salvador Dalí and his Paranoid-Critical Method

Six Paintings. One Concept

We could make this publication thanks to small donations. How is 3 minutos de arte supported?


In the middle of Surrealism, where the artist liberates his unconscious mind with psychic automatism, Salvador Dalí proposes a new method: he makes the observer liberate his unconscious with delirious, ambiguous, absurd images, by making connections and interpreting them. The artist sates: “What we see isn't in things but in our souls.”
