Lorena R Krause
In the Manifeste du surréalisme, André Breton declares that Surrealism aims at “resolving the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality.” Surrealistic artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, invented strange creatures from everyday objects, and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself. Lorena Krause’s portraits expand such theories further, presenting female figures which combine the tradition of portraiture with ornamental and symbolic elements.
