ARTISTS BIOGRAPHY 參展藝術家簡介
Alexandra & Serge Siro
We are Alexandra and Serge, an IT girl and a photographer (that’s why often behind a camera). Before corona came, we used to travel quite a lot and have posted our travel pictures.. But now the times are different, for all of us..
A year ago, locked down in four walls with more spare time as usual, we began to create our tiny series #seeroads_homeadventures, and then stopmotions and other video magic . It brings us a lot of fun and experience, despite it takes hours or sometimes even days to achieve the good result.
Salvador Dalí, (1904-1989), Spanish Surrealist painter and printmaker, influential for his explorations of subconscious imagery.
Dalí is an artist with extraordinary talent and imagination. He presents his paintings in a “paranoid critical way”. He often juxtaposes things illogically in the paintings, adding or replacing the absurdity and weirdness of his inner world into or replacing the external objectivity. The world reflects the subconscious in the way of decomposition, synthesis, overlap and interlacing.
His works of art are famous for exploring the weird dreams of the subconscious, and are closely related to Freud’s psychoanalysis. He captures the madness of the human mind and is an artist with extraordinary talent and imagination.
