Surreal Sunday 3 : Drawing

In an experiment to determine whether or not surreal art can be produced by someone without any artistic merit or skill, I am currently featuring six works of art. Five of the works featured recently in the British Surrealism in Context Exhibition . The sixth work of art will have been produced by someone without any artistic ability or experience (me) on my kitchen table in less than an hour. Your task is to spot the surreal fraud. You can comment as we progress through the six works or wait until the end to give your verdict.
Entitled simply "Drawing", this piece displays "delicate colour harmonies and a keen sense of the post-cubist importance of flatness and hard edge".

  1. Alan, I sooo want to say you did this one, but I'll hold judgement 'til the end. This seems more complex than it looks...

  2. I am also reserving judgement. Is that cowardly or what?

  3. I keep looking Alan, but I think my artistic gene must have been removed at birth. I just don't get modern and surrealist stuff. Great weather done here in the south for the last week, and still holding.

  4. This looks like something I could create on my kitchen table... but I'm keeping schtum until I've seen them all. Interesting challenge! I have a feeling I will get to the end and still not know which one is yours!

  5. Ah ha... this could be the red herring but I am saying this is the one you created at the kitchen table... I do like it. I would much rather have this hanging in my living room than the last one :)

  8. Haha looks like the sort of doodles I do when I should be taking minutes in meetings! Definitely not making a judgement until I've seen all six but this could have been done by a five year old.

  10. I'd say I can't imagine Alan drawing such neat geometric lines... but, who knows?

  11. Well, this could be yours, but then again, I could be wrong...I'm also not good at hedging!

  12. I like this one. Looks like one of those kites at the big kite festival in Washington State each August.
