From Our Editors

Salvador Dali said that sexual instinct, feeling of death and physical notions of the enigma of space are the great vital constants that make up the language of the unconscious -- it’s also the language found in Simon Wilson’s Surrealist Painting.Dealing with the fundamentals of human existence, surrealists tried to create art that is universal in its significance, speaking directly to the spectator’s deepest instincts.
