AN ARTIST “OUTSIDE THE HUMAN NORM”
Each work by Salvador Dali conceals a story of the soul, because the soul of the most paradoxical artist of the 20th century was full of brilliant flashes, mingled with thick, black clouds. Through the restless blend of the conscious and the unconscious world that had wedged itself, unified, into his brain, Dali was, at the same time, both physical and metaphysical.
Dali was born, grew up, created, and died “outside the norms”. His work goes beyond the usual boundaries of an ordinary artist who paints what he sees or what he imagines. Dali’s imagination is outside the time and place in which artists of the last few centuries functioned, particularly during the Renaissance. This metaphysical person experienced – by transcending his unconscious world – unity with the world of spirits that swirl though time and space, the souls of saints and demons together. The ethereal figures, which envelope and follow us every moment of our lives - but are impossible to perceive with our five senses - are manifested as complete entities in the infinite dark world of the eminent artist’s soul. Dali grasps the space-time vibrations of the universe and, without being aware of it himself, expresses them in his works.
The fourth dimension, which we can experience when we die, was experienced by Dali from the very moment he was born. The world of ghosts, which dominates the fourth dimension, is the world of his esoteric reality. The Jesus portrayed in his paintings represents the Good of the luminous side of his soul.
THE 4TH DIMENSION AND DALI
The senses vary qualitatively from person to person. In the case of Salvador Dali, his senses functioned in a form of contact with the world, which is exceptionally difficult for a simple observer to explain. For a scientific observer, the subjectivity of Salvador Dali raises the problem of whether it constitutes an expression of perversion or of genius. Or, perhaps perversion is not a hindrance to the artistic expression of a genius?
PORTRAIT OF A SURREALIST
Salvador Dali Dominique was a controversial figure in the Surrealist movement. His artistic genius and his schizophrenic personality made a strong impact on critics of Surrealism, while he himself brought back into the limelight the all-powerful spirit of overthrowing the rules of art and geometry. Through his works, he distinguished himself by brilliantly balancing realistic technique which tends towards surrealism. Out of his two-dimensional self, springs a super-skill for choosing subject matter from the “collective memory”, which is expressed through an unparalleled geometric depiction, making him a unique and totally original artist of the visual arts.
Dali cultivated and developed his remarkable abilities in Catalonia and he links it with his own history. He states that the artist is not merely a talented person with free will, who seeks some aims of his own. Dali profoundly believed that an artist is someone who allows art to express its aims through the artist himself.
A journey to the unexplored world of the soul of a person that made lunacy art and entered the space of the 4th dimension with his brush and pallets.
A trilogy of life dedicated to lovers, to art and to the misapprehension of the biggest surrealist of the 20th century!
A film that unfolds the unknown world of the soul of the artist Dali, with the angels and demons that torture his conscience, the macabre forms of darkness and the dreamlike figures of Gala, the woman who engraved the street of glory for him.
