Step into a world where imagination and mystery blend into a surreal environment that challenges how you perceive what you see. The familiar becomes anything but, and maybe it never was to begin with, but now everything takes on new life and meaning as the familiar becomes increasingly fascinating. This world is René Magritte’s, the surrealist captivator now on show at the MoMA, Magritte: The Mystery of The Ordinary 1926–1938, brings together Magritte’s work from Brussels and Paris in a comprehensive and at times disturbing exhibition. Magritte gives the impression of a visual scientist, his work methodical and detailed, using a muted almost corpse-esque color palette to depict people and objects in bizarre circumstances and settings. The overall effect is thought provoking and haunting, stirring your curiosity in how the ordinary can be morphed in such a way. See the exhibition now through January 12, 2014, and learn more here.
