Surrealist self portraits artwork closeup
Online art: Symbolistic art: Surrealist self portraits
Surrealist self portraits use symbolistic art on a very personal level. This surreal pen & ink sketch (below) is the only one currently on display in the online art galleries. Surrealist self portraits allow one to look inTO the artist, beyond the physical reality. This black & white drawing did not begin as a statement of any sort, but then again most art doesn't: it just happens. Usually the interpretations (and understanding) come afterwards. That's part of the deal when working with your gut/subconscious: your head has to stay out of the way until after all of the work is done <lol>. THEN you let the head play with it all, AFTER the work is completed :) Click here to return to the artwork gallery page.

Online art from the category : surrealist self portraits. Symbolistic art on a very personal and intimate level.
There are three words in this sketch: me, myself, i Wherever you go, there you are.
The white inside the hand, the ghostly, typewritten word (myself): the blank page that this story will be written on. Symbolistic art has three layers: personal, historical and cultural. Surrealist self portraits focus most heavily on the personal level.
The shoe shown is a sketch of a red shoe. Ever read Clarissa Pinkola Estés interpretation of the old red shoes fairy tale?
