What do I love about surrealism?
I love that there are no rules and no boundaries to what I can create. I love that I can create fluidly and freely
I love that it doesn’t have to have a deep message or hidden concept, and I love that it can have both.
I love that is challenges my understanding of reality and extends it.
As an INFJ on the Myers- Briggs scale, my inner world is rich and complex. I’m introverted and get lost in my own thoughts and imagination. I could get away with it more as a child, but my staring into space haze gets noticed as an adult!
Inside I work in pictures and feelings and it can be hard to articulate. Working within surrealism gives me a free reign to communicate without explanations without trying to make people understand. Because ultimately, as an INFJ, people find me difficult to understand, and so I don’t share myself with many people. I create a persona which functions well in society instead.
I’m grateful for having art and surrealism as a means to express myself, in what I feel as a safe way.
What are you grateful for?
