More than Surreal.

The word surreal has become one of the most recycled, overused (and misused) words. As 20th century’s most famous art movement, Surrealism has evolved from a political and social critique of the bourgeoisie to a roving deep into the altered mind. Today, “surreal” is a common intensifier for anything that’s weird or inexplicable. The surrealist artworks on Stew are more than peculiar rearrangements of symbols, beyond a fanciful break from reality. These artworks are created in praise of the cerebrate, our yearnings for romantic passageways, our nostalgia for the marvellous. Our earnest efforts to explain the structure of reality — the unexplainable — are manifested in art, ambivalent of space and time. These artworks put us into a trance, at the same time they address our long-standing frustrations in everyday life, they answer to today’s science, environment and humanity.


More than Surreal. These artworks illuminate potential for new ways of waking, sleeping, thinking.
