The first thought that arose from me when viewing this still life – that all objects had an uncontrolled attack of levitation. Maybe this earth came off the axis, maybe the trumpet trumpet, announcing the end of the world? The land, the water and the sun mingled on the horizon, announcing the triumph of the last bloody sunset on planet Earth.
Things have already lost their properties and functions, and we are seeing a process of loss of form. Still life, located on the table, came to life: vases, a knife, a bottle, fruit – all started on a crazy dance. And yet, take a closer look, the air atmosphere
Another interesting subject that holds the hand of the invisible man is the horn of the rhinoceros. Maybe this horn was the initiator of levitation and the revival of objects? In Dali’s world view, this is quite possible, because the rhino horn is a sacred and mystical object for him, along with the skull of an elephant. This surreal reality is crazy, the more you sink into it, the more real it seems. It’s time to stop…
“Within six months,” recalls Dali, “I pursued the goal of mastering the technique of the old masters, to comprehend the secret of their explosive immobility of the object.” In the still lifes of Dali, the objects lost their immobility, but they acquired a mad temperamental movement. This vortex of tango nature vivante destroys our notion of reality. But in a world where the horn of a rhinoceros ruled everything is possible, even “Alive still life”.
