Surely the most celebrated Belgian artist of the 20th century, René Magritte has achieved great popular acclaim for his idiosyncratic approach to Surrealism. Conceptual artists have admired his use of text in images, and painters in the 1980s admired the provocative kitsch of some of his later work. While some French Surrealists experimented with new techniques, Magritte settled on a deadpan, illustrative technique that clearly articulated the content of his pictures. The quality of Magritte's pictures often results in a powerful paradox: images that are beautiful in their clarity and simplicity, but which also provoke unsettling thoughts. They seem to declare that they hide no mystery, and yet they are also marvelously strange. He produced a body of work that rendered such commonplace things bizarre, slotting them into unfamiliar or uncanny scenes, or deliberately mislabeling them in order to “make the most everyday objects shriek aloud.” We at the Trendsetter Studio love the idea of reimagining a piece of art as a critical tool that could challenge perception and engage the viewer’s mind—full of traps and uncertainties.
