Soft Watch At The Moment Of First Explosion By Salvador Dali

Also known as Soft Watches, work (oil on canvas, 26.3 x 36.5 cm, The Museum of Modern Art, New York) is characteristic of the creative process that Dalí had developed since his meeting in 1929 with the Surrealists. The paranoiac-critical method,” in 1930 indicated in the text Donkey rotten (No. 1 of the journal Surrealism in the service of the revolution) and resonates with the work of Lacan (magazine articles and thesis on Minotaur the paranoia in dealing with personality published in 1932), is intended method “active” ownership-transforming reality through a system where personal memories, fantasies, desires and their interpretations have an important role. Heterogeneous materials gathered and kept their own character in an accurate and realistic pictorial representation, but at the same time, are absorbed in multiple combinations and symbolic.

If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.
