disappearing act (a la Magritte)

cross design in the style of Magritte, with cloudy blue sky and red curtainOctober 18, 2015

Today, a cross inspired by another one of my favorite Surrealist painters, Rene Magritte (1898-1967), known for his witty and thought-provoking images. His aim was to challenge observers’ preconditioned perceptions of reality. Several of his paintings feature a theatrical red curtain and/or a blue sky with clouds.

We are surrounded by curtains. We only perceive the world behind a curtain of semblance. -René Magritte

Will the day tell its secret
Before it disappears,
Becomes timeless night.
-Dejan Stojanovic

Praise, my dear one.
Let us disappear into praising.
Nothing belongs to us.
― Rainer Maria Rilke

Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself. -Desiderius Erasmus
