TITLE: "Part II: Narrative: Lemonade." © Chris Eisenbraun 1997.

Lemonade: Taking life's sour lemons and adding enough sugar to make them palatable. Begun February 14, 1997; completed March 7, 1997. This work of original surreal art is all about perspectives.

It's very hard to see on the screen but the sword turns into a pencil as it exits the faery's body. This symbolizes the fact that the passion/pain is channeled--take off the pencil and nothing is left but a huge, gaping hole/wound and the life blood drains away.

Because of the clock some people place this work of original surreal art in a horizontal position. It works either way, each denotes a different perspective/viewpoint. The copyright runs along the horizontal edge, the signature & name are on the vertical bottom. I laughed when I found this out. Me? Create a work of art where you can't tell which way is up? It never occurred to me that there was a choice, but that works really well with the meaning of the piece <g>. Too funny :)

The sword is white, but even the purest white can become (or be seen) as black. That's why the sword become black when seen through the shadow of the hand. It IS a white sword, but then again we all know that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. BIGtime. This piece is all about perspective and viewpoints. An example of a white sword turned black? A white lie, the Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades, etc., etc. The road to hell is paved with good intentions...

The faery guides her awkward craft (the broken/torn queen of hearts card): one hand on the head, the other on the heart. The torn/broken queen of hearts card and faeries are symbols carried throughout three of the works in this series ("Wildcard," "Lemonade," and "Midnight"). The combination of contourism, crosshatching and stippling are also common elements in these works of original surreal art featuring faeries :)

This artwork featuring faeries, is the second work of original surreal art in a series of four. Click here to view the entire original surreal art series (in one setting).




Surrealism was similar in some respects to the late 19th-century Symbolist movement, but deeply influenced by the psychoanalytic work of Freud and Jung.
