I’m an artist from Southern California, whose method of escapism was found in art history books, and anything I could find, with pictures. I always drawn to the Surrealist and Cubist schools, the most. I admired their vision, and ways of composition. It was when I saw Eugéne Atget’s “Magasin, Avenue des Gobelins,” however, that I finally found a true kinship with Surrealism. I had been in love with the complexity, inherent in each pane of glass, for as long as I could remember—- I just never knew what to call what I was seeing. Now, I see myself as a hybrid of these two magnificent movements.
