Surreal Alternative

April 14 - May 13, 2018

On April 14th, RJD Gallery – specialists in the genre of realism, will present their premier exhibition dedicated to contemporary Surrealist painters. Surrealism allows us to see art in its purest form because it stems from imagination rather than rational thought and it often features elements of surprise with random objects and unpredictable juxtapositions. The world today draws parallels, with post World War I, when Surrealism was born, when artists, such as Salvador Dali or Rene Magritte, & intellectuals, like Andre Breton, were looking for an escape against the harshness of reality. Today, within news and global politics we are challenged by the excessive exposure to fear & lately, “Alternate facts“ – so that surrealists again, are essential to present a provocative view, to open and challenge the human mind and offer respite.

This exhibition will feature numerous paintings from each of the following international representational painters: Turkish artist Fatih Gurbuz, celebrated Swedish artist Alexander Klingspor, award-winning Angolan-Portuguese painter Jorge Santos, and Margo Selski, will be on display. While at first appearing to be classical in composition, palette and technique, viewers will be intrigued by and eventually challenged by the enigmatic, provocative narratives. The canvases become artistic roadmaps to liberate perception and invite us to contemplate the human experience beyond the confines of rationalism. These artworks summon us to escape and liberate our thinking, explore our imaginations and discover beauty beyond the boundaries of our perception.
