Surrealism is not my favourite style of painting but some images are so iconic they transcend genre. Salvador Dali’s melting clocks are such a strong image and the painting I am referencing, The Persistence of Memory, is his most popular work. Dali described his paintings as hand-painted photographs of his dreams… I’ve never had a dream like this so it makes me wonder what he was smoking 😛 Surrealism raises a lot of questions and while we may never really know exactly what Dali was trying to say in this painting, it has certainly captured the imaginations of millions of people in the last 87 years.
