Artists that Make You Think

Dec 17, 2006

I enjoy artists that tickle your mind and make you think. Salvador Dali definitely fits that mold for me. Many artists can make you think, some almost like a law school professor grilling you to death with ancient historic facts or popular cult knowledge.

Salvador Dali tickles your brain and makes you think in ways that most of us are not accustomed to thinking. His pictures can always be interpreted slightly differently depending on your perspective and this is what makes them so fresh to look at no matter how many times you have seen them.

One of my recent favorites of Dali's work is the Archaeological Reminiscence of Millet's Angelus.

If you look at this from a distance it appears to be two people in silhouette, these would be the figures from Millet's painting The Angelus(A painting of two french farmers or peasants praying. this rendering in abstract of that painting shows the man(left) and the woman (right) in the forms of two decayed buildings), look a little closer and it looks like to other figures looking at two building ruins in silhouette and that's just the beginning of your journey with this image from Dali.
