Dalí 1904-1989. Dalí sublimated his life in his art of painting. Relying on great craftmanship, acquired in all sorts of art experiments, he lifted surealism, in a inimitable self-willed manner, to exceptional heights. He photographed, as it were, associatively what enacted in his mind. Incited by, at the time, new psychological insights he tried to fix his subconscious with images, and to visualise his dreams in all their inscrutable symbolism. It was for his purpose that he developed his famous “paranoid-critical” method. To us, one dimensional mortal souls, only the paintings and other expressions remain as fascinating witness to a literally unbelievably intense and active life. Perhaps we are so drawn to them because not only do they allow us to have a look inside Dalí’s subconscious, but they also are a mirror reflecting our own souls.
