ZK Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of Salvador Dali’s Sculptures and etchings.

Salvador Dalí is among the most versatile and prolific artists of the twentieth century and the most famous Surrealist. Though chiefly remembered for his painterly output, in the course of his long career he successfully turned to sculpture, printmaking, fashion, advertising, writing, and, perhaps most famously, filmmaking in his collaborations with Luis Buñuel and Alfred Hitchcock. Dalí was renowned for his flamboyant personality and role of mischievous provocateur as much as for his undeniable technical virtuosity. In his early use of organic morphology, his work bears the stamp of fellow Spaniards Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. His paintings also evince a fascination for Classical and Renaissance art, clearly visible through his hyper-realistic style and religious symbolism of his later work. Dalí epitomized the idea that life is the greatest form of art and he mined his with such relentless passion, purity of mission and diehard commitment to exploring and honing his various interests and crafts that it is impossible to ignore his groundbreaking impact on the art world.

Dali’s direct involvement with the sculpture originates from a Dali idea, a Dali image, an original maquette made by Dali. The maquette can be a wax form, a gesso, a drawing or a gouache. Dali himself created the original maquettes and approved an edition of sculptures originating from this maquette.

Dali’s Sculptures | Opening Reception – Thursday, April 30th at 6:00pm – 9:00pm.
