Immaculate Perception

Immaculate Perception.

Surrealism, asserted André Breton, was above all "a revolutionary movement."  And that movement, both visual and literary, was largely identified with the dream. Shock, non-sequitur, unlikely but often gorgeous juxtapositions were the signature elements of surrealist works.

These ideas come to term in Immaculate Perception by Matthew Rose –  a lullaby in the surrealist cannon: A young girl in a bob cut dreams in a dream of a lemon tree.  She is the revolution, says the artist.

Based on a smaller collage, Immaculate Perception measures 80 cm x 60 cm (31½ by 23¾ inches) and is inkjet printed on fine art paper in an edition of 50, each print signed and numbered and dated by the artist and printed on high quality acid-free fine art paper.
