A constant longing for the eroticism of encounters motivates much surrealist work: the unaccustomed meeting of images is intended to provoke an enduring excitement, which transpires against rationality to enable its powerful effect. Everything about l'amour fou , the obsessive, frenzied love emulated by the SURREALISTS, haunts the watchers as well as the lovers: the desire spreads from each to the other. The event, the place and the feeling are entirely beyond the bounds of normal living. These encounters reveal new domain of vision, indicated through reflections, shadows, reversals, doublings; in Breton phrase,
The "systematic derangement" of the senses.
Enjoy the selection from the club:
'You are not the passer-by, but one who remains. The notion of eternity is linked to my love for you. No, you are not the passer-by not the strange pilot guiding the adventurer through the labyrint of desire. You have opened to me the country of passion it selve. I lose myself in your thoughts more surely than in a desert. And even as I write these lines, I have still not confronted my image of you with your 'reality'. You are not the passer-by but the eternal lover, whether you wish it or not.'
Robert Desnos, 1927.

Leaving the group, looking for administrators
Hello everybody I regret to announce that I will leave the group as Adminstrator, I have not enough time to manage the group professionally as it deserves. In the past my two goals were the publication of a book which was made possible with the support of Roman Newak and Exiff, the other was to a group exhibition in a museum or gallery, I assure you that I will continue looking for that. I appreciate your support and help, I made many friends at this time, I met people who are now part of my life, more than friends. Again I ask your help to recruit administrators to promote the group, we need new blood. I am grateful to Devorah, a great
Interview with Paulina Gora
I had another chance to interview a fellow artist, this time Polish surrealist artist Paulina Góra (paulee1 (https://www.deviantart.com/paulee1)). She tells about her favorite style of art and how music, movies and her children inspire her. Tanja: Paulina, thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions. Would you please tell something about you and your interests? Paulina: I don't know what to say about myself. I am a mom first, an ordinary mom. I am interested in many things but don't have much time. I spend all my free time painting because I like to do this the most. I also like reading, watching movies, listening to music... :) Which kind of art
Great article feature here, and a good poit as well! Arioricism is a big part of the human mind, and as surrealist work often is about unveiling the mind, it is inevitable that eroticism will be a big part of a lot of surreal art. Thank you so much for featuring my "Lecherous Gemini", "Eitt Litli Aevintyr" and " Modir Jord" here in this great feature. I am honored.
A constant longing for the eroticism of encounters motivates much surrealist work: nothing speaks truer with me than this statement. Beautiful tribute!!!! Thank you for including the exquisite corpse "Sleeping Beauty" by Bernard, Sheela, and I.
