DALLAS - Fantastic Realism, a captivating new exhibit showcasing provocative and imaginative artworks in a variety of media, opens at LuminArte Gallery on May 25, 2013.


Sometime playful, often times haunting, the phenomenal, dreamlike artworks highlighted in this exhibition depict the evolution of a deeply intellectual and imaginative artist movement as expressed by both local and international artists, including Katrin Alvarez, Shahla Rosa, Magi Calhoun, Chema Gil, Alan Shepard, Sue Little, Mark Vey, Sergei Rodionov, Liba W. Stambollion, Patrick Soulieres, Kathy Seaboyer, Trent Mann, Salvatore Zagami, Igor Samsonov, Otto Rapp, Santiago Ribeiro and Tina Spiro.



Like Surrealism, Fantastic Realism delves into the inner universe of the human mind; but, as a genre with its origins in post World War II Vienna, this lasting art movement focuses less on the political and psychological concerns of Surrealism, and finds its direction through the depictions of the dualistic nature of reality in a dynamic expression of the human condition. While being stylistically influenced by both Gothic and Renaissance artwork, including Northern European masters like Hieronymus Bosch, prevailing themes like conscious and subconscious states, civilization and nature, and war and peace become unified concepts rather than opposing forces. Fantastic Realism also deviates from Surrealism in its search for subjective Truth rather than focusing on the seemingly absurd juxtapositions of free associations. The Fantastic Realists are more concerned with creating a modern mythology by exploring a dream-conscious state in order to increase a depth of perception and awareness and to develop a poetic world view.
The international exhibition will run through June 29 th, with an artist reception on May 25 th . Both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
