Begun in 1983 (1983-1989), the work could never be shown publically or privately, due to prejudice and contempt for Surrealism. Originally stolen and put in storage, for over 25 years,

the work was recovered, and repairs made and minor alterations were completed, on the composition, to the finished work. Being too large to photograph the right and left wings are not shown

R.S. Beal "Contradictory Mirrors" (Grasping Mirrors) DETAIL Oil 2011

 R.S. Beal 'Disharmony in the Universe' Oil


*Oneiric: (common use-N.Gr.) of or relating to a dream. Pertaining to a waking condition which appears dreamlike.

*Veristic (Verism): to have the 'appearance' of reality. Theory or style holding that truth and realism as (is) an aspect of art and often using contemporary material as opposed to Romanticism. The use of non-logic subliminal imagery in a realistic vein.

SURREALISTE: Initially used by Appollinaire for his fantastic farce, Les Mamelles de Tiresias (1917), which he subtitled 'un drame surre'aliste'

- The First Generation Surrealist's detested 'good taste' in art and despised any form of 'censorship' in image making. They firmly believed that 'social art' and ALL previous art was only another form of supporting the bourgeois authorities of class control -

THEY Essentially destested fine art, as a kind of cultural crutch.
