Further details
'Aside from Renaissance painting, another genre that seriously influenced me when I was learning to paint was Surrealism. What was so fascinating to me was the emphasis on dreams and the subconscious consistent among all Surrealists. They would do things like meditate, or keep dream logs, or induce hallucinations with drugs or hypnotism or sleep deprivation, anything to trigger some state change and deliver them to some alternate reality. The art they made following these experiences are fragments of what they were able to ‘bring back’ with them, like souvenirs—or postcards.' EMMA STERN
