The Surreal Deal

Updated: Jan 25

Even as a teen, I was immediately drawn to a number of the Dadaist's works which seemed to be based in irony and humor. I'm drawn to such things still. There's something about taking the starch out of something people stare at in museums and galleries I find satisfying. In fact, I feel I'm most successful (from a self-satisfying perspective) when I create something droll, whimsical, or slightly absurd. I know that confuses some folks because, well, "...isn't art supposed to be serious?" Gosh, I hope not. I've always felt I was born a hundred years too late. So, a few years back, I put together a few items which were influenced by some who genuinely broke the rules the first time.

Vexed


Oedipus Cup


Nimble Tines


Lock


It's San Andreas's Fault


Furnace


The Portable Keyboard


Wall Mounted Restraint


Anti-Inflation


Museum Item: Writing Implement

And, among early influences:


Bicycle Wheel / Marcel Duchamp / 1913


Cadeau (Gift) / Man Ray / 1921


Object / Meret Oppenheim / 1936
