Imagination can open up ones mind to new ways of thinking. Surrealism often has the effect of triggering ideas and stimulating the creative process to me surrealism frees my mind and leads me into exciting new places. Often this school of art is the very distraction I need when life's little stresses take their toll. Surrealism is from the sub conscious and on occasion may be a release of emotional energy. I think sometimes it's just plain old fun and that's why I love creating it.
