The Chartreuse Flames of Escapism
by Anne Faith Nicholls, 2018
Acrylic on Canvas, 36” x 24”
The Chartreuse Flames of Escapism is a Neosurrealistic painting, created to depict a multi-level, cross section of one’s subconcious, whilst in a state of Wanderlust. The phycological practice of Escapism (or day-dreaming) is explored though symbolism and layers, with stylistic elements inspired by the great Spanish Surrealists.
