Surrealism was a cultural movement that developed in Europe in the aftermath of World War I in which artists depicted unnerving, illogical scenes and developed techniques to allow the unconscious mind to express itself. … Works of Surrealism feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur.

Louise Fishman ( 1939–2021) was an American abstract painter from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For many years she lived and worked in New York City, where she died. “As with all good paintings, those of Louise Fishman speak for themselves, powerfully. To realise painting as art sprang not only from her will to do so, but also from her strong background in the study of painting through actually making paintings, in depth, wholly, and streadfastly.” — Suzan Frecon

Ben Culwell (1918–1992) “It is for the important average that I want to speak, the rank and file. The general nature of the use I try to make of the art of painting is, I hope, apparent: that is, to express the sum of relationships which is a total human being.
