Internal Expansion classic surrealist painting
Internal ExpansionAt first glance, the canvas looks like a classical landscape made in established traditions and canons, and combined with a surreal sub-picture that overlaps the old-fashioned idyllic landscape. This approach gives an unexpected perception to the viewer. There is a secondary, parallel world that opens in front of us. We are surrounded by a world full of perfection and harmony. There are lives; there are realities in structure that differ from ours. There are trees, rivers, hills, sky, clouds, and oceans. Throughout the centuries, they have thrilled us with excitement and were the objects of eternal inspiration. We create them in our imagination; they reflect our mood and sense of existence.
Landscape painting marks the various stages of nature understanding, its emergence and development since the middle ages. It is part of a cycle in which the spirit of man once again tries to be in harmony with the surrounding world. Landscape painting is one of the main disciplines in the 17th century. The Flemish artists developed it as an independent genre. Initially, it was not full of realistic details, often made in the studio from memory or imagination. The most striking examples of the landscapers are Joachim Patinir, Bles, and Peter Brueghel. . Durer calls Patinir - a good landscape painter. His paintings invite you to visit the groves, the woods, and the village by the road or the city in the distance. In his majestic landscapes, a man is lost and the beauty of nature comes to the fore. The more realistic landscapes in the Dutch style are often made on the basis of drawings which are made in the open air. The low horizon allows emphasizing the impressive cloud formations that are so characteristic for climate of the region. They are presented to the viewer as an amazing decoration set. The favorite topics were; dunes, the seashore, the dark forest, the adjoining meadows, winter landscapes with frozen canals, abundance of streams. The sea is a particularly favorite topic, since the Netherlands is a "lowlands ".
Internal expansion is a claim, an innovation of a new vision, a new perception of reality in which it is reported that both the author and the viewer are now paradoxical. They are able to see more than reality is before his eyes. He has a peculiar, expanded opinion, the manifestation of his feelings. The Dutch landscape of the late twentieth century has been transformed for more than four hundred years. Two centuries easy, without contradictions merge in the picture. Sky-blue, azure color fascinates, attracts. A glance slides along the river toward the horizon. Invites to travel on its winding curves, stop in the shade of picturesque trees. He notices rocks in the distance and emerges into the misty expanse of the sea, even severe, cold stone formations are seen as inviting and affable. Penetration of a foreign object is accentuated by the "tension" of the airspace.
Deformation of the sky, the feeling that there is something more in addition to what is seen before the eyes, the appearance of a guest from another world is amplified and emphasized by tears and cracks in the place of tension. They also form barely perceptible borders and give multidimensionality to the picture. At the same time it can be assumed that this canvas, painted in oil paints, cracked in tribute to a tradition, like the old works of masters of the past centuries. Internal expansion, it's about the ability to see more than reality give you! Transparent giant sphere hardly touches an ideal, smooth surface of water with a cloudy structure enveloping its openwork. In the place of their contact, there are two worlds, two realities, and two centuries. There are two areas of art - classics and super-realism.*
