Salvador Dali Triptych Skateboards - Musart on Decks - Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee (1944)

- +


Part of Musart Boutique’s original collection Musart on Decks comes this exclusive limited edition of 100 Salvador Dali Skateboard Triptych features his iconic work Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a Second before Wakening Up made in 1944. This iconic work by the Spaniard Surrealist artist is found at the National Museum of Thyssen-Bornemisza. This explicit and long title provides a perfect description of the original painting (oil and collage on canvas). The sleeping figure of Gala, Dalí’s wife, and muse floats above a rock in a tranquil marine landscape. Beside her naked body, two drops of water, a pomegranate, and bee are also airborne. Gala’s dream, prompted by the buzzing of the bee, appears in the upper part of the canvas; there, from an exploding pomegranate shoots out a fish, from whose mouth two ferocious tigers emerge together with a bayonet which, one second later, will wake Gala from her restful sleep. Although by 1944 Dalí was already living in America and devoting little time to painting, this canvas marks a return to his ‘paranoiac-critical method.’ His view—based on Freudian theories—that images were open to multiple interpretations made him one of the leading members of the Surrealist group.

    The artist who above all others symbolizes Surrealism in the public imagination is the Spaniard, Salvador Dalí. His genius for publicity brought the word “Surrealism” to the level of a common noun in all languages. Not only Dali's art denotes that is irrational and erotic, but also mad–and fashionable. All at once, his paintings, his writings, his utterances, his actions, his appearance, and his iconic mustache celebrate his eccentricity. The Surrealists’ exploration of the human psyche and dreams reached new heights in Dalí’s extravagant works. In his paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and designs for furniture and movies, Dalí probed a deeply erotic dimension. While studying the writings of von Krafft-Ebing and Freud, he invented what he called the “paranoiac-critical method” to assist his creative process.</p> Dalí’s surrealist works are characterized by their haunting allegorical empty space where even time has ended. An eerie, never-setting sun usually illuminates the barren landscapes, with often amorphous and imaginary creatures in the foreground. Dalí rendered every detail of this dreamscape with precise control, striving to make the world of his paintings convincingly real–in his words, to make the irrational concrete.
