The International Fantastic Art Association will be hosting their 2009 exhibition in Tokyo.
“Beauty will be convulsive or not at all.” Andre Breton
Illusions and dreams are constantly with us all, and it is as if we are completely immersed in nature.We use our imaginations to deal with the infinite diversity of nature, and to add the desirableaspects of our fantasies to the world. As for persistent or insatiable illusions, they are a positive affirmation of the notion of taking part in a world which is becoming brilliant. Rather than perceiving artistic illusions and fantasies as a particular genre, one can view works of art such as sculptures, photography, painters and so on as a much more comprehensive spirited work, which we can use to associate and create relationships between the various genres. Hereafter, we will be pushing the boundaries of exchange between these genres and their associations further and further.
I hope that you will enjoy the variety in what we call our “Garden of Delights”!
