Life Struggles

Artist: Irene Lazarus

The piece was inspired by Surrealism. The Surrealist artists use the canvas as a medium to express their abstract ideas or thoughts in a figurative way. There is much symbolism in the juxtaposition that the painters present. They use the dreamlike unconsciousness to bring their ideas/feeling to the conscious awareness of the viewer. This allows for much room for interpretation. There is not a right or wrong answer. This is for the viewer to discover and enjoy on their own.
