這幅畫作，是一幅向超現實畫家，達利 (salvador dali) 所致敬的作品。我相信達利對大家來說都應該不陌生，他的超現實作品細緻震撼，創作靈梘包括溶鐘，螞蟻，大象，熱情果等等。全部都是以人類潛意識為基礎，同時亦實踐了佛洛伊德對夢境及潛意識的理念。
首先，我們好應該好好了解達利的背景：達利有一位哥哥，同名為薩爾瓦多，而在達利出生9個月前他死於感染疾病。這件事在後來對達利造成很大影響，包括人格危機，導致他一度認為自己是死去哥哥的複製品。直到達利五歲，父母將達利帶到哥哥墳墓前，告訴他，他是哥哥的轉世，於是達利終於相信這個說法。達利從小就獲得藝術教育，並於早年展出過作品，算是非常順利的藝術路途。他同時亦深深受到文藝復興的細緻畫風影響到。25歲的達利從巴黎來到家鄉西班牙度假，結識了比他大10歲的卡拉·達利 (GALA Dali) ——他未來的妻子，也是他一生最重要的“ 繆斯”。度假結束後，卡拉沒有回到巴黎，從此在達利的身邊陪伴了一生一世。達利崇拜卡拉，視她為聖母化身。在他的畫裡，激情的描繪都集中在她的身上。在達利晚年所畫的宗教主題畫中，他毫不掩飾地把卡拉畫成聖母，也畫出了卡拉在他心目中的“超現實”形象。在現實生活中，卡拉是達利精明幹練的專業總管，獨自扛下了所有的家庭雜務，讓達利專心創作；她更是行銷高手，達利噱頭十足，她則能言善道，兩人聯手打入美國市場，如魚得水，名利雙收。
好吧，從此可見，加拉的確是達利的主要創作靈感來源。由此我重點分析了一幅達利畫作 『Dream caused by the flight of a bee around a pomegranate a second before awakening.』決定模仿並為構圖作出少許改變。在這幅作品，體現了“手繪照片”的概念。正如達利經常提出在他的畫，有一個遙遠的地平線和平靜的海景，也許是西班牙港口Lligat。除了漂浮在海面之上的平靜岩石之上，沉睡赤裸的加拉身體旁邊，達利描繪了兩個懸浮的水滴和一個石榴，一個基督教象徵生育和復活的象徵。石榴上方飛翔著一隻蜜蜂，一種傳統上象徵著聖母的昆蟲。在畫的左上方，似乎是一隻黃葉石魚從石榴中爆發出來，然後又噴出一隻老虎，然後用刺刀刺出另一隻老虎和一支步槍，刺刀正要刺激手臂上的加拉。在他們之上是達利第一次使用長有火烈鳥腿的大象，發現在他後來的作品，如 The Temptation of Saint Anthony，大象背著一個方尖碑，靈感來自貝爾尼尼的大象和方尖碑在羅馬的聖瑪麗亞索普拉密涅瓦廣場。
This painting is a tribute to the surrealist Salvador Dali. I believed Dali should be no stranger to everyone. His surreal works are meticulously shocking, the creative ideas include dissolution of clocks, ants, elephants, passion fruit and so on. They are all based on human subconsciousness while practising Freud's concept of dreams and subconsciousness.
First of all, we should have a good understanding of Dali's background: Dali has a brother with the same name, El Salvador, and died of infectious diseases nine months before Dali was born. This incident later had a significant impact on Dali, including the crisis of personality, which led him to regard himself as a replica of his dead brother at one time. Until Dali was five years old, his parents took Dali to his brother's grave and told him that he was his brother's reincarnation, and Dali finally believed and relieved. Dali gained art education from an early age and exhibited works in his early years, which is a very smooth artistic journey. At the same time, he was deeply influenced by the fine style of the Renaissance. 25-year-old Daly was on vacation from Paris to his hometown of Spain, met more the 10-year-older Gala Dali - his future wife, but also his life's most important "muse". After the holiday, Dali did not return to Paris and accompanied by his life. Dali worships Gala, as she is the Holy Virgin embodiment. In his paintings, the portrayal of passion is concentrated on her. In the religious-themed paintings of his later years, he painted Gala into Madonna without any concealment, and also painted the "surreal" image of Gala in his mind. In real life, Gala is Dali smart savvy Explorer, alone carrying all the family chores, let Dali concentrate on writing.
Dali and his father's relationship almost broke, due to his objection to Dali's romantic relationship with Gala and, as a popular culture of the time, Gala wasn't being accepted by Dali's family. Dali's father even asked him to make a public apology, due to his public speech, but Dali rejected. At the age of 25, Dali said to others: "Gala can treat my neuroticism, anxiety and violent urges." Perhaps, precisely because of this reassuring ability, Gala became Dali's inspiration for life. In the art world, this is extremely rare, in which Gala accompanied Dali for more than 50 years and continued to appear in Dali's paintings. After her death, Dali lost his muse for inspiration and stopped creating. There is no great painter Dali without Gala Dalí, a fact recognized by the art world.
Dali went to the United States for the Second World War in the late eight years, and those were the most prolific and controversial time in his life. During this period Dali marginalized the painting in order to subvert the design and the merchandise while wandering between art and consumer goods. In his later years in Spain, Dali returned to Catalonia and laid down Spain as his place of residence, and he designed the trademark for the treasure. In the same year, he became the creative director of Eurostat Advertising and created a giant metal sculpture erected on the stage of the Royal Opera House in Madrid. Since Gala died on June 10, 1982. Dali lost his passion for life after her death. He deliberately left himself severely dehydrated, purposely attempting to commit suicide, but he defended himself to achieve a stagnant state of mind, just as the result of some bacteria.
Dali admits that he presents a "personal dream and illusion that Freud reveals." In search of this surreal illusion, they, like Dr Freud explore the consciousness of the mentally ill that their words and actions are often a genuine reflection of a subconscious world that is not found in everyday life. For the surrealist painter, this is something of prime importance. Therefore, many of Dali's works are always combined with specific details and arbitrary exaggeration, distortion, omission and symbolism to create a "surreal realm" between reality and imagination, concreteness and abstraction. Reading his paintings, people understand all the details. On the whole, they feel ridiculously absurd, contrary to logic, weird and mysterious. This kind of "subconscious" scene is actually a subjective "conception" by the artist. It is not a subconscious or unconscious expression of emotion at all.
Well, from this we can see that Gala is indeed the main source of creative inspiration for Dali. From this, I focused on the analysis of a Dali painting "DREAM CAUSED BY THE FLIGHT OF A BEE AROUND A POMEGRANATE A SECOND BEFORE AWAKENING." I decided to imitate and make a few changes to the composition. In this piece, it reflects the concept of "hand-drawn photos." As Dali often presents in his paintings, there is a distant horizon and peaceful sea views, perhaps the Spanish port of Lligat. Besides the calm rocks that float above the sea, sleeping asleep on the naked Gara body, Dali paints two suspended drops of water and a pomegranate, a symbol of Christian fertility and resurrection. A bee is flying above pomegranate, an insect that traditionally symbolizes the Virgin. At the top left of the painting, it appears that a Yellowstone fish erupted from the pomegranate and then a tiger was ejected, then a bayonet and a rifle were stabbed with a bayonet, and the bayonet was about to stimulate the Gala on the arm. Above them was Dali's first use of an elephant with flamingo legs and found in his later works, such as THE TEMPTATION OF SAINT ANTHONY, an obelisk carrying an obelisk inspired by Bernini's large Elephant and obelisk in the Santa Maria Sopra Minerva square in Rome.
The bayonet, on behalf of a woman, may suddenly awaken from her dream of calm. This is an example of Freud's influence on surrealistic art and Dali's attempt to explore the dream world in dreams. Pomegranates floating between two drops of water may symbolize Venus, especially since it forms a heart-shaped shadow. It may also be used as a symbol of Christianity that gives birth and resurrection. This female symbolism can be contrasted with penile symbolism that threatens biology. Others think the painting is "an interpretation of the surrealism of evolution." In 1962 Daly said the purpose of the painting was "to first describe the concept of dreams in Freud's lengthy story as a result of the occasional moment that caused the sleepers to wake up, so the bee's The loud noise stimulated GALA tingling.
I tried to imitate this copy, follow the elements of its own, add feminist ideas, emphasizing how female figures were materialized (original), than the naked and the attempt to become the source of desire; now try to tell, that is a dream Occasional occasions, ladies are able to control a moment when awake, regardless of dream or real world, and should not be dominated by men. However, after all, the painting is primarily a tribute to Dali's style and theory.
