TITLE: "Sextant" © Chris Eisenbraun 1994.

Sextant: A navigation device used by ancient mariners. This work of original surreal art became THE PIECE that showed me the way into surreal symbolism. The gut/subconsious speaks, the hand draws and the head (eventually) figures it all out. Sextant. Who knew? It was just a word that popped into my head and I knew it was the name of the artwork. NOW, I know WHY it is the name of the work (and it all just blows me away -- how it all fits together <g>). The little voice, it speaks truth man.

The first piece to feature the "i-fish." The i-fish eventually becomes my personal symbol, my totem if you will :)

One of the first works where everything begins to come together (artistically speaking). More than any other piece this is where the transition from fantasy illustrator to surrealist/symbolist becomes clear cut. The irony? The realization came AFTER the piece was completed <lol>. It would be many years before the pen was picked up and that particular path followed. This was a work of accidental surrealism. Later works (1995+) become original surreal art.




The leading Symbolists included Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes.
