- In many cultures and societies, the fear of new art forms and/or traditional Surrealist forms prevents those forms from being shown - Art is seen as a threat to the Status Quo and 'established' pedagogues. While the Renaissance of Fantastical, Surrealist and Visionary Art seems to continue and advance, far beyond Breton's own expectations, onto a worldwide stage, with numerous group and individual shows in New York, etc., many rural mid and midwest geographical areas in America, refuse to accept or show Surrealism. The greatest of those artists have simply been ignored, unless they, also, CONFORM, to the status of what 'surrealism' is supposed to represent, according to the percepts of gallery representation and home decor.

- where does the fall sunrise
CAST its SHADOW
On the lighter side
of the EDGE of the MOON where
It's Notion Can't be SEEN
Where the cheapest melody and the larger
As he asks for more and more and more . . .
Where, ON THE PENSIONER'S Whores
Just this side of the other shore . . . -
'The belief that the deepest of Melody pours out of the smallest of daily experiences - Ivan Goll
Poetry site under construction requires Key to Access
The idea that every 'act' Reveals an unknown or unconscious motive resulting in a corresponding
'sequence' of unconscious or otherwise 'subconscious' motives, artifices or acts and even consequences. The principality and simultaneous denotation of PURE Thought as a creative disruption of meaning, whereby the often ordinary connotation of words, objects and situations (melo-dramatic, contrived or sincere) shifts onto another place of the fantastic not unrelated to its original exponent, yet still manages to infiltrate the field of the infinitude as an inferential reality. Similar to a dreamstate that discloses something otherwise 'HIDDEN' to the 'dreamer' . . .

- The Man in the RED SHIRT appears in numerous paintings by R.S.

It made its first appearance in the mid 1970's-
