Neo Surrealism

I found this website on neo surrealism which I have added a link to.
The fact that the artist has created a building on a ship creates a sense of place even though the dead can't go home. This is a very dark image which creates a sense of fear and entrappment in a inescapable place. Silent and eerie.

Title: Flying Dutchman Phantomdescription: According to folklore, the Flying Dutchman is a ghost ship that can never go home. The Flying Dutchman is typically spotted from afar, sometimes glowing with ghostly light. The most famous Ghost ship in fiction, a ship crewed by the not living.

Title: The Sand Castledescription: Most castles, from the earliest times, followed certain standards of design and construction. Many early castles and certain later ones were nothing more than simple towers. The tower houses of Britain and England are an example of this type.

This image evokes good memories of sandcastles on the beach and holidays, a place where families go to relax and have fun. It gives a sense of neutality!

However the dark brooding skies could be a message that perhaps all is not what it appears!!
