Artwork Archive – Sea Creature Surrealism

Sea Creatures Surrealism (cropped) - Sandra Burns Art

“Sea Creature Surrealism” is from my artwork archive, completed in 1980!

This is a surrealist interpretation of my still life drawing “Serenity” that I shared last week.

Taking inspiration from surrealist artists, such as Salvador Dali, our task was to create a completely different artwork using one of our still life projects as the starting point.

Surrealism meaning:
The Webster Dictionary describes surrealism as “the principles, ideals, or practice of producing fantastic or incongruous imagery or effects in art, literature, film, or theater by means of unnatural or irrational juxtapositions and combinations”.

Let’s make art! Here are the two, side by side.
“Serenity” and “Sea Creature Surrealism”.

It was a challenging task to turn your work into something completely different. And exhilarating at the same time.

And I admit to not having done this again. Although I do quite like my Sea Creature Surrealism.

Art has always been in my veins, this was completed in high school.

Tell me in the comments below if you like this artwork. What do you feel when you look at this scene?

One thing I have learned from looking through my old artwork (my artwork archives), is I never should have stopped! 

Bring happiness to your home right now and solve that blank wall space that’s been bugging you!

Thanks for viewing my art.
