"I know what the picture should be ... We take a duck and put some dynamite in its derriere. When the duck explodes, I jump and you take the picture." -Dali
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33605837


Here is a more extended quote I found. It accompanies a pretty outrageous image that would be cool if someone could upload.

Dali: “I know what the picture should be … We take a duck and put some dynamite in its derriere. When the duck explodes, I jump and you take the picture.”

Halsman: “Don’t forget that we are in America. We will be put in prison if we start exploding ducks.”

Dali: “You’re right. Let’s take some cats and splash them with water.”

...he saw a snail on a bicycle outside Freud's house when he first met Sigmund Freud.
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

"I have been inclined to regard the Surrealists as complete fools, but that young Spaniard with his candid, fanatical eyes and his undeniable technical mastery, has changed my estimate."
- Sigmund Freud

"In the Surrealist period, I wanted to create the iconography of the interior world and the world of the marvelous, of my father Freud. Today, the exterior world and that of physics has transcended the one of psychology. My father today is Dr. Heisenberg."
- Salvador Dalí

At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.

Salvador Dali
 Quoting: Jasper


"When I was six I wanted to be a cook. When I was seven I wanted to be Napoleon. My ambition has not ceased to grow and now my only wish is to be Salvador Dalí and nothing else.

On the other hand, that is very difficult, since the more I approach Salvador Dali the more he recedes."

Re: Salvador Dalí - Quotes and Pics
"While the majority of the Surrealist artists had become increasingly associated with leftist politics, Dalí maintained an ambiguous position on the subject of the proper relationship between politics and art.

Leading surrealist André Breton accused Dalí of defending the "new" and "irrational" in "the Hitler phenomenon", but Dalí quickly rejected this claim, saying, "I am Hitlerian neither in fact nor intention".

Dalí insisted that surrealism could exist in an apolitical context and refused to explicitly denounce fascism. Among other factors, this had landed him in trouble with his colleagues.

Later in 1934, Dalí was subjected to a "trial", in which he was formally expelled from the Surrealist group.

To this, Dalí retorted, "I myself am surrealism".

"In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love.
After that, be a snob."

**The first step to salvation is to realize that we are all sinners:
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 6:23
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Re: Salvador Dalí - Quotes and Pics
"When I arrived in Paris I painted a large picture which I entitled Premonition of Civil War. In this picture I showed a vast human body breaking out into monstrous excrescences of arms and legs tearing at one another in a delirium of autostrangulation."

"As a background to this architecture of frenzied flesh devoured by a narcissistic and biological cataclysm, I painted a geological landscape, that had been uselessly revolutionized for thousands of years, congealed in its "normal course."

"The soft structure of that great mass of flesh in civil war I embellished with a few boiled beans, for one could not imagine swallowing all that unconscious meat without the presence, however uninspiring, of some mealy and melancholy vegetable."

"Our need of taking part in the existence of these things and our yearning to form a whole with them are shown to be emphatically material through our sudden consciousness of a new hunger we are suffering from."

"As we think it over, we find suddenly that it does not seem enough to devour things with our eyes, and our anxiety to join actively and effectively in their existence brings us to want to eat them."

"Beauty should be edible, or not at all."

- Salvador Dalí


(i sense a kabalic tie-in. The kabala is the artist's, or sorcerer's, best friend. Lewis Carrol described this very same thing concerning his writing philosophy. It's written about in The Annotated Alice somewhere. Maybe or not I'll look it up. ;)

Re: Salvador Dalí - Quotes and Pics
As Dali wrote in his first manifesto, a book entitled La Femme Visible,

"The new images which paranoiac thought may suddenly release will not merely spring from the unconscious; the force of their paranoiac power will itself be at the service of the unconscious."

The primary function of the paranoiac-critical method is, of course, to produce images of a startling and authentically unknown nature.

Contrary to belief, these are not hallucinations.

Rather than perceiving an object which does not exist, the paranoiac mind perceives alternate meanings and interpretations of objectively "real" things.

The new interpretation may, in fact, be totally viable, and can displace the original perception instantaneously. Whether this new relationship is created or merely noticed by the viewer is irrelevant.

"It is enough that the delirium of interpretation should have linked together the implications of the images of the different pictures covering a wall for the real existence of this link to be no longer deniable."

 Quoting: ehecatl

I remember being told, "ehecatl, it is important that you know that floripondio is a deliriant, not a hallucinogen. Do you understand the difference?"

I would like to see a surreal painting of the perceptions of the Sandy Hook Massacre, following these guidelines.

"Those who worry about technique get everything wrong."
- Salvador Dalí

one may have better technique, they think, than Dalí, but if their subject is not gripping, it may fall flat.

Whoever wants to engage people’s interest must provoke them.
- Salvador Dalí

and perhaps contrary to the view of the Catalan surrealists, Dalí's peers, politics is a weak card, because people are politically divided. Thank God. There is however psychological and occult knowledge that could provide an aspiring artist powerful ideas of what to create. This understanding of underpinnings is more important than technique, as seen for example in the modern world, where even simple cartoon figures are made to carry powerful ideas.
