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.

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.
you´re welcome! after browsing our the gallery of the club I realized that you´re the artist with more works in this selection, beautiful works, full of eroticism...

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.
