Hello, we have selected three of the most interesting and appealing Trippy paintings that we have for sale. We are constantly expanding our collection, but for the time being, we can offer works by Salvador Dali and Paul Klee. We hope you enjoy our choices.
1. Fish Magic by Paul Klee
Fish magic meaning
Fish magic is thought to be a mix of aquatic, celestial, and terrestrial beings. The painting has an openwork surface of black paint on top of a dense layer of multicolored pigments. Klee scribbled and scrawled colorful figures on a dark background after that. A square of muslin was glued to the center painting, giving the image the appearance of a collage. The painting’s dark palette and the muslin’s fragility create a mysterious and inky atmosphere.
“Fish Magic Paul Klee” fully corresponds to the traditions of German Romanticism with its mixture of fantasy and natural empiricism, poetry and pragmatics,” writes Ker. She describes the technique used to draw various fish, plants, people, and clock towers as “an advanced version of the games that children play with wax crayons.”
Fish Magic painting is a masterpiece in which Klee’s artistic gift’s intellectual and creative forces are reconciled, creating a “sense of magic.” Temkin specifically mentions a thin diagonal line running from the middle right corner of the canvas to the top of the clock tower, writing that “a long line drawn from the side appears ready to tear off [the square of muslin] to reveal something underneath.”
2. The Burning Giraffe by Salvador Dali
The sky serves as the primary background. This is an indicator, an accurate indicator of the artist’s condition in Dali’s work. But, whereas the sky in the painter’s early 1930s paintings is permeated with sunlight and flooded with light, the first impression here is twilight and darkness. The artist concentrates the oppressive darkness in the upper part of the image, which is why the anxious mood grows – this is a forewarning of future problems.
The painting’s characters move along the ground with a low, written horizon line:
The title of the work suggests that the main character is a giraffe. He stands on thin legs in the valley of Ampurdan, alone and defenseless, touching and pathetic, and personifies Spain itself, engulfed in fire. The space behind the burning giraffe disappears into the twilight haze. The giraffe is not the largest figure in the picture without reason – the world is currently being taken over by war and bloodshed, cruelty, and death, from which civilization itself is suffering and is on the verge of destruction. The artist depicted her as a huge female monster; the central figure, the largest, occupies the entire picture vertically. She has many open drawers, symbolizing the lack of secrets, and no matter how powerful her weapons are, she is defenseless before the war. Her faceless head has already turned red and is about to burst into flames like a giraffe’s body, and her scorched hands are helplessly attempting to find their way through the air. The exhausted body does not fall solely because of props – the civilized world is fragile and unstable; the figure to the right is also on support, with many appendages holding the body together. She’s holding a bloody piece of flesh in her hand. The head, however, is covered in green, living shoots, so not all is lost, and there is hope that this nightmare will end and civilization will survive.A lonely man wanders lost between the giraffe and the mountain, his white figure barely visible – he is afraid, he is a simple citizen, and his life is as small as a grain of sand.The entire image is written as if from the ground, at the foot of a large figure, giving the impression of the scale of what is happening, as well as its epochal significance.
According to Salvador Dali, the giraffe on fire as a character in the picture was a “male space apocalyptic monster.” In this broader sense, a giraffe represents the start of a war and the destruction of an established world – according to Nostradamus, who predicted that the war would begin with the appearance of monsters.
Female prop figures depict the unavoidable horrors of war, including devastation (open boxes) and countless bloody victims (a head ready to explode or burst into flames from a nearby female monster, a piece of flesh in the hand of a distant one).
Dali was always concerned about humanity’s loss of connection to its past, with the wisdom of its forefathers – memory as a special substance was part of his reflections, resulting in creativity. The surrealist’s symbols, a master genius, and a great interpreter proclaim the aspirations of a successful outcome from this madness, and Dali’s burning giraffe is perceived as an unhappy but persistent victim.
This Salvador Dali composition with a giraffe on fire still inspires hope – through the shoots of fresh greenery on the head of a female monster. This long-suffering head is supported by a complex design of props for a reason: to preserve it and prevent the sprouts of life from death. Even if everything perishes in the fires of human insanity and the world drowns in aggression, rebirth will occur, thanks to memory.
3. Enigmatic Elements by Salvador Dali
One of Salvador Dali’s outstanding works from the 1930s depicts the artist as a child in a sailor suit, with a nanny sitting next to him. The painting also features the famous Dutch artist Jan Vermeer, whom Dali considered to be the greatest master. On this canvas, Vermeer paints a mysterious landscape with cypresses. By the way, in Salvador Dali’s works, cypresses represent time—at school, he often tried to guess how much time was left until the end of lessons by the light falling on the trunks of cypresses. It is worth noting that all of the elements in the image do not have a clear interpretation and can be interpreted in a variety of ways, which is why they are referred to as mysterious.
