We move within a closed landscape whose landmarks constantly draw us toward the past. Certain shifting angles, certain receding perspectives, allow us to glimpse original conceptions of space, but this vision remains fragmentary. It must be sought in the magical locales of fairy tales and surrealist writings: castles, endless walls, little forgotten bars, mammoth caverns, casino mirrors  (Surrealist Quotes) Really, I do not know whether my paintings are surrealist or not, but I do know that they are the frankest expression of myself  (Surrealist Quotes) The purest surrealist act is walking into a crowd with a loaded gun and firing into it randomly  (Surrealist Quotes) To be a surrealist means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been  (Surrealist Quotes) Luis Bunuel’s two semishort surrealist hand grenades (cowritten in varying degrees with Salvador Dali) make a double bill that can restore your faith in the subversions of youth.
