      //APPARATUS AND HAND//
      SALVADOR DALI




      • Up until the year Dali painted Apparatus and Hand in 1927 at the age of 23, his main influences had been the Impressionists and early 20th-century painters. Through his early visits to Paris he went beyond these influences as he embraced Surrealism and Sigmund Freud. Thus this painting is steeped in the dreamlike anxiety of the Surrealists.

        The central figure of the piece, of course, the apparatus, is at an angle as though it may topple over at any moment. It is supported on legs that are as flimsy as flimsy can be. Witnessing this staggering apparatus is rather like watching a drunken man staggering about or Clint Eastwood in a spaghetti western who has been shot but has convinced himself he can continue as though nothing is wrong when his body will collapse at any moment. All in all, it makes the viewer uncomfortable.

        On top of the apparatus is the hand without skin. It seems electrified, radioactive.

        The apparatus could almost be human as though a human is desperately trying to emerge from the surreal landscape of Dali's mind. The two smaller figures around have a more pronounced human quality.

        Such imagery placed in a surreal landscape challanges us to look at the world around us with a new perspective or questions the way we look at the world around us already. It is Dali's disturbing take on the "real" world.
