  Surrealismo [ Blog dei Surrealisti Critici Paranoici, Questo Blog è solo per veri Daliniani ]

Ogni mattina quando mi alzo,
sperimento un piacere supremo,
quello di essere SALVADOR DALÌ

Il mondo intorno a noi si dissolve, lasciando qua e là chiazze di tempo. Penso a quando il grande silenzio scenderà su tutto e dappertutto; allora infine trionferà la musica. 

Henry Miller (Tropico del Cancro)

At the age of six years I wanted to be a chef. At the age of seven I wanted to be Napoleon. My ambitions have continued to grow at the same rate ever since.

  ... Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them - On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly - After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them ...

"¡No podéis expulsarme porque el Surrealismo soy Yo!"

... L'intelligenza senza l'ambizione è un uccello senza ali ...

Gala Dalì

Elena Dimitrovna Diakonova, born in Russia, daughter of a muscovite functionary; possessed a great sensitivity for art and distinct physical and intellectual attractiveness. She was part of the surrealist group, many of which were in love with her.

She met Dali in the spring of 1929, at the time married with Paul Eulard. They promised to visit him in Cadaqués during the next summer, a meeting arrangement that also included Bruñel, Magritte and his wife.

Dali's love for Gala, a woman 10 years older than him, exploded then; he realized numerous extravagancies to capture her attention. His emotion was such, that every time he tried to talk to her, he suffered uncontrollable laughing attacks.

During a stroll in Cabo de Creus, Dali fell on his knees laughing, he declared his love for her, and holding his hand Gala said "... my boy, let us never to be separated..." this would have given Dali a feeling of being divinely understood.

In his secret life, Dalí tells us: "...her body had an infantile complexion, scapula and lumbar muscles a teenager's tension, the curve of her back however, was extraordinarily feminine and gracefully joined the energetic torso with the delicate buttock, that her bee like shaping, made her even more desirable..."

Gala had a great influence on Salvador Dali's life and deed. She died on June 10, 1982. When the news was given to the painter, he said "...she is not dead, she will never die..."
