“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.”

I would like to dedicate a post of mine,to the genius of Rene Magritte, my favorite of the favorites painters,and one of the most extraordinary artists. Below, there are shown some of my favorite works of him and the mystery and absolute attractive nothingness behind them.Enjoy.


Les Amants. (The Lovers)
Everything we se hides another thing; we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.


Le noctambule.
 An object never serves the same function as its image – or its name.


The face of genius.
The mind loves the unknown.It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.

The reckless sleeper.
 If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream.

Le Miror Magique.
 Only thought can resemble. It resembles by being what it sees, hears, or knows; it becomes what the world offers it.

The spirit of geometry.
To be a surrealist… means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been.

The Pilgrim.
 A truly poetic canvas is an awakened dream.

Time transfixed.
 Life obliges me to do something, so I paint.

The upcoming one is my favorite.


Personal Values.
An object never serves the same function as its image – or its name.
