Reality / Illusion

“One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.” Salvador Dali

In this 30” x 28” painted drawing on wood, “The Crib”, Frank gives a nod to Dali’s thinking and surrealistic style. Here a young mind is caged within the enforced “reality” of established order. Yet the look on the young face would indicate a plan to escape and find freedom.

  1. It is probably true that we are all trapped by “reality” at least to some extent. Even thinking we are aware of that can be part of the illusion, if we need to fool ourselves. Cool drawing by the way. It tells the story, and I think Dali would approve the connection.

    1. Thank you Julian. You are correct, illusions are everywhere we go, even within our enlightenment. But, that should not keep us from continually refreshing our clear perspective of the universe. Find some joy today, and thank you for adding your wise thinking here.
