Monday Morning Not-Surrealism

William Hogarth, "Satire on False Perspectives," 1754

 There will be no Surrealist art at The Word Warrior in the month of December. Only artwork that is surrealistic.

For the month of my birthday (which is the 23rd), I will be hosting works that celebrate my favorite trope of Surrealism-proper; believable visual representation of impossible objects or spaces. At its best, this trope can define the very limits of our perceptions and powers of comprehension. In identifying the impossible, we grasp at what is possible, which is to say, all that is real.
