I like this - there's something a little mournful about it. I love the muted colours in all your work, too.

Excellent work, sir. The line, wire, steel pipe across the screen with the banner reminds me of Joe Cornell.

We're sorry to inform you that the accounting dept. has determined that your account is six months in arrears on the "full view" surcharges. They are not , as you say, "free". They are in fact heavily taxed, and a continuous drain on everyone's resources. Please arrange for payment post-haste and immediately.

You may not know that any and all excess full view taxes collected, go to support important public service efforts, such as The Department of Silly Walks, etc. some of which have never been able to pull their own weight.

Awesome. There is almost physical presence to this piece, it looks more "real" somehow than some of your other work, less of a manipulation and more like something actually hanging on a wall. I might add actually that in looking at a lot of 'surrealism' your work stands out as actual Surrealism. Nice work.

..thanks Neil ... I'm not sure what 'actual' surrealism is - as the term is so hard to nail down .. but - I just go with my expression of it - putting everyday elements together in such a way as that it gives one a certain 'feeling' . ..hard to define - easier to do.
:lightbulb: goes on ---> lien = neil . . . . I'm slow.

You're welcome.

Sorry that was a bit ambiguous wasn't it, to elaborate I do daily curator work for an abstract group here and I see a lot of mislabelled work come through including quite a bit of "surrealism" which is actually just weird shapes or something. There is on the other hand a distinct quality to some of the Surrealism from the actual historical movement which defines (albeit in an ambiguous way) it's presence and ideal; such as one would find in a museum. In this piece you have captured the latter definition and that's what I was complimenting. I hope that makes more sense. :faint:

So, you know, 'actual' surrealism.
Again, nice work. (:

...well - I have read and observed much about the historical movement of surrealism ..but it is the short lived and preceding 'metaphysical' movement that I most relate to ( De Chirico etc ) ...and I must agree that , even on this site , a lot of what I see is melting forms with eyeballs which I really don't care for ... (a lot of the Daliesque type of thing - done poorly ) .... in most 'collections' of surrealism here and on the net - there are few images that I can really relate to .... yet I do manage to find lots that I do admire - even if they are not always labeled 'surrealism'
....anyway - I appreciate that you can relate to some of my work as 'true' surrealism...if that makes any sense ! :)

heh, what sense...In hindsight maybe I should have just said "nice accurate labelling of your work there" and faved it and left. lol
