Modern Surreal Brazilian Art, "Dance of Forms"$499.99
Beautiful landscapes seduce the senses with the enchantment of nature's unspoiled beauty. Superimposed upon them, ribbons of lucid color form an industrialized composition suggesting highways and architectural construction.

Titled "Dança das Formas" in Portuguese, this painting forms a part of the artist's series "The Eyes: Windows of the Soul."
Always startling, surreal art is original and thought-provoking; it celebrates idiosyncrasy. The original intent of the movement was to free the mind from the restrictions of convention and rationality. Artistic methods of liberating the imagination drew on Freud's work with dream association and the hidden unconscious. Arising from the Dada or anti-art movement following World War I, the surrealist movement issued its own manifesto in 1924.
Novica artists convey a vast variety of personal visions in the surrealist painting. Teodoro Reque Liza brings a luminous geometry to architecture paintings and landscapes drawn from the Peruvian coast. Miriam Chipana adds elements of pre-Hispanic art to bright, mixed media canvases. Instilled with a dreamy beauty, Marita Peña Mora's portraits and music paintings explore themes such as angels and goddesses in everyday scenes.
