Topic #18--"Surrealism" Entry

Check out this wonderful contribution from Johnnynorms! Be sure to visit the full blog post for interesting commentary.

"Taking a lobster for a walk, having fried eggs for eyes...I think it's easy to be superficially surrealist. It's very hard to be originally so, but a different matter altogether to genuinely draw deeply from one's unconscious dreaming mind, and doubly difficult to then shape that raw material into profound finished work. I speak as someone who has merely nibbled at the edges of Andre Breton's Surrealist Manifesto."
