 - There is nothing wrong with Abstraction and decoration in the Arts other than it's vacuity and ludicrously amateurish simplicity - All art is an abstraction, albeit all art isn't necessarily empty -

 *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'

    'Toy Soldiers, real guns and the wrong people' Oil 2008 (Visit: Intro Gallery)

    sub-tilte: "1000 Genocide Nights"

    - Detail from '1000 genocide nights'

    originally titled 'Chinese Baseball': note the black footed figure beating a wooden manniken with a baseball against a frontis view of a toy soldier. This was probably an unconscious comment about the current contradiction and public propaganda of  holding the Olympics in a country currently suppressing freedom of thought, censorship of u-tube, general censorship and general genocide. The title was changed because this was only a small symbolical aspect in the treatment of a more irrational and larger subject. Surrealist paintings should not and do not require interpretation. Also Surrealist works are not limited to specific cultural events, specific times, locations or geographical areas and they tend to instead overlap, juxtapose, recombine, etc., biographical, political and social arenas into an irrational inexplicable mystery which contain multiple views and perceptions of any one event, state, being, etc..

    Tibet protests spread to other provinces as Dalai Lama warns of cultural genocide

    China's communist government had hoped Beijing's hosting of the Aug. 8-24 Olympics would boost its popularity at home as well as its image abroad. Instead the event has already attracted scrutiny of China's human rights record

    Thubten Samphel, a spokesman for the Dalai Lama's government, said multiple witnesses inside Tibet had counted at least 80 corpses since the violence broke out Friday. He did not know how many of the bodies were those of protesters. The figures could not be independently verified because China restricts foreign media access to Tibet.

    Hundreds of soldiers and police patrolled the streets. Hong Kong Cable TV said about 200 military, vehicles each carrying dozens of armed soldiers, drove into the city center.

    TONGREN, China - Protests spread from Tibet into three neighboring provinces Sunday as Tibetans defied a Chinese government crackdown and the Dalai Lama decried what he called "cultural genocide" taking place in his homeland.
