Infinite Divisibility 1983 Oil

Surrealism proper ranges from DALI'S 'paranoic critical methodology, Bretons 'automatic writing' and the various games of 'the exquisite corpse', with it's components of concrete irrationality utilized to 'materilize images' of the upmost imaginative intricacies and frenzied obsessions. It includes Tanguy's fossizlied frozen internal mindscapes and Duchamps (and the Dadaists) disgust at culture and art in general. Surrealism currency abounds in examples of the most bizarre and complex, yet recognizable images of the collective unconscious.

R.S.Beal  'Infinite Indivisibility'  Oil  30 by 30"  1995 (available as a giclee Print six color iris)

Compare to Yves Tanguy 'Indefinite Divisibility' Oil  1942 - The two paintings while being quite similar are indeed very distinct and different. This is an offsite link to the original work by Tanguy.

'Mannequin with Nun' Oil on Canvas 16 by 20" 2004. While this site features the 'Biomorphics' of R.S.Beal, Surrealism often encompasses the incongruous grotesques originally acknowledged by BOSCH, BREUGHEL and GRUNEWALD and the early and late Renaissance Masters of the macabre and oneirical. Modern art movements can often be initially disconcerting to the viewer unaccustomed to the unfamiliar and often biased by the prejudice's and taste's of any particular culture's social conventions. All works on this site are for sale (unless otherwise designated) and purchases are either thru The artist or his Sales agent). This Site DOES NOT endorse paypal purchasing.

  This Months feature painting is 'Mannequin with Nun' 16 by 20" Oil on Canvas 2004 (a relatively small, albeit minor master painting completed by the artist at the end of 2004).

R.S. Beal  'The Inventions of Culture'  Oil (DETAIL)  38 by 48" 2007

While Dadaism was not the first modern movement to introduce 'Manikens', Store dummies and Dress models into art, as a legitmate form, it was they and Giorgio Chirico who took it to a new, heightened level of metaphysics and philosophy in modern art. His presumptive, composite heirlooms were a signal and harbinger for Paul Delvaux and the likes of the First Generation Surrealists. Even Vermeer utilized Dress Manikens in his exquisite Helios Depictions of trompe oil seen thru 17th Century 'sunlit' Windows of imagination. The contemporary artists, utilizing The Artists Wooden Model, store manniquins and composites, as he does, depicts scenes from beyound even 'subconscious' imagination and sublimated dreams. It was 'Surrealism' that opened the Door To this Oneirical and heliclined subconscious that gradually ascends both upwards and downwards in a simultaneity of equivalant coincidence beyond even mans 'rational' perceptions and his absurd willful desire to CONTROL the cosmos and its intermediatory, extraordinarily unique environment.

R.S. Beal   'Dali's HAND'   20 by 16"  Oil

A fur-lined 'teacup', a flying saucer in the shape of a spoon, a mesmerized and irrelevant flat-iron in the shape of a female breast . . . these are all components for the often sardonic and the ludicrously deceptive worlds of Surrealist imagination. Not a substitute for the managed labels of rationality and the well ordered universes of science, politics and mathematics, the Surrealist iconography yet encompasse's both worlds of order and chaos and recombines them into a new dialectic of mystery and imagination.

                      R.S. Beal      'THE LABYRINTHE'         OIL  (44 by 58")         2000-02

The Freudianized belief in a noble civilization is somewhat absurd considering the equivalence and ambivalence of the current term and the amount of the current gold standard.

       Ready-mades, anti-art and psycho-photographical phenomenal incursions into seemingly perfectible 'human faculties' are ludicrous in the light of real day and the so-called 'expert' art-critics.

       The 'World-at-Large' is neither specific nor definite and is certainly not based on squalid geometrical parallels of prejudice and jaundice.   R.s.BEAL (2004)

       'Any pictorial or plastic work(s) is USELESS; unless it (the) least be a MONSTER capable of terrifying the lackey-spirited, and NOT the honeyed food-bar decorations dear to those animals dressed up as men; let them not be illustrations of the squalid fable of humanity' - TZARA (1918)

 Aquatint and Line Etchings 1970 - 2011


                    'Schema' Aquatint and Line  2011      'Rembraun Vasarily'  2010            'Female in a Tree'    Line Etching  2011

The artist is a 'master' printmaker on both metal and stone and uses both zinc (soft-metal) and copper for etching. Etchings are 'hand-printed' (IMP) by the artist on a large professional 'Conrad' combination press and 'Giclee Prints' are scanned ALWAYS from the original work and printed by D. Douglas (master printer) 'In GRAPHIC Detail' in Six-Color process or rather ink-jet spray on Heavy-weight acid free Archival paper and with proper care and protection should last as long as any Oil on Canvas work.

  • Intalgio Prints signed/numbered (ETCHINGS)
  • Intaglio Prints are NOT 'Reproductive Giclee Prints' but rather Original works of Art as each print (IMP-printed by the Artist) varies from print to print due to the individual 'hand inking' of the original copper or zinc plate and ALL work is done (drawn-etched) by the artist on the plate. The Artist uses all intaglio methods of Aquatint (powdered rosin), traditional line etching and drypoint sometimes with softground. Most intaglio prints are typically small plates printed on Art Laid White archival or Graphics Heavy Weight or Rives Etching paper. Ink color varies from umber-black to rich 'intense black' to full color plates and depends solely on the individual etching. The artist is a Master Printmaker and has etched over 34 years. Etchings are a good investment if you want smaller works in original form. Typical etchers are, of course, Durer, Rembrandt, James Ensor, Whistler, Degas, etc.. Etchings vary in price depending on size of plate, etc.. - typically ranging from $125. and UP.

          R.S.Beal 'The Minotaur' (Aquatint and Line Etching/Second State) 8 by 10" dated/signed in pencil 2000 on Graphics Heavy Weight printed (IMP) in rich Umber-Black. Typically priced at about $325. No deposit required but must be paid in full or C.O.D. Can be purchased directly from Gallery or Artist E-mail. A 'Giclee Print' (reproductive print) of the Etching would be about $125.00. Both prints are identical excepting one is the 'Original' printed on etching paper and one is a GicleePrint 'reproduction' of the original. For additional reading refer to: Lee Catterall's book on 'The Great Dali Art Fraud' concerning the distinction between 'reproductive' images and Original works of art. Many Galleries will sell unsuspecting customers fraudulent 'reproduction's' and call them 'Original Works'. Often the art is NOT even by the artist.
