George Grie and the Neosurrealism. 

In his proclamations of Surrealism published in 1924,1929,1941 and 1953, influenced by the psychoanalysis of Sigmund Freud, Andre Breton exposes a true work method, founded on the dream and daydream, hypnosis and psychic automatisms. Concerning pictorial art he declares that: “ the picture must be primarily a shock, a disturbance and thus an emotion, with the direction first of the term ”. In the Seventies Surrealism is renewed and seen new prospects suddenly opening. The NeoSurrealism or Gothic Surrealism takes as a starting point the pictures of the héroïc fantasy, of the American literature underground and the artists quickly integrate various mythologies which populate the unconscious collective to produce images often very beautiful aesthetically but such in charge of an emotional great power. These emotions come directly from unconscious because the Surrealist artist is in direct contact with this one, his dream expresses himself in the image which it produces. From the Seventies the taste for fantastic painting continues and today the numerical novel methods make it possible to the artists to more freely express and in a perfect way all the potential of their imagination. It is this step which George Grie adopts, born on May 14th, 1962. After studies on Art and a career of painter the discovery of data-processing new technologies enable him to go even further and to cause these famous shocks and these disturbances and emotions that Breton called its wishes. Without wanting to reveal all the unconscious mechanisms, which would quickly become rather complicated, we will say that George Grie remarkably uses the contents who populate the unconscious collective and there juxtaposes mythological or imaginary images. Always it is that the magic operates. Several elements are omnipresent in its works. Sea, boats, cathedrals or castles. Water, the sea, the ocean, calm or agitated are before any symbols of the unconscious one. But there is a relationship with the top because water goes down from the sky. If it is very agitated the heart is agitated if it is peaceful the heart is serene. The Ship crosses the oceans of unconscious it often represents our own personality. In all the cultures it is question of boat of life and it is in this direction that it is necessary to interpret the boat of the dream. The church, the cathedral or the castle are symbols of the person, as it is not rare in the images of the artist to find caves there and places or one can enter more or less easily it acts here of a place where must be carried out an interior rebirth. Moreover with its arrows and its high towers these monuments rise towards the sky and are an aspiration towards the divine one, the eternal and spirituality. The characteristic of the images of George Grie is that they often pose serious existential problems which all concern us. Situations with which early or late we will be confronted. It is also one of the facets of the talent of the artist to know to question the individual on essential problems.
