Historical Context:
"As many of you know, the principal subject of my work as an art historian has been the Surrealist movement. In many respects I think of my visual work as an extension of my research on Surrealism. While the term 'surreal' is often used today quite loosely, I have come to appreciate Surrealism above all as a radical, yet complex and subtle, form of cultural production and critique. It is this aspect of the project, which I most wish to respond to in my work, both visual and verbal." - Kirsten Strom
