Matthew Courtney’s unpredictable collections of objects; Mark J. Dixon’s vacant, dream-like landscapes; Andre Rubin’s collaging of disparate pictorial elements; and Etta Winigrad’s unusual (and sometimes slightly disturbing) disrupted human forms all reference aspects of Surrealism while remaining distinct from the Surrealist tradition. Through diverse methods and mediums, these four artists offer new approaches to representing the unconscious. Provided with little direct explanation of why these artists create what they do, viewers are encouraged to respond intuitively, using their own logic to find connections between the work and themselves.
