超现实主义一词最早是由Andre Breton于1924年在 “超现实主义的第一宣言”中提出。
超现实主义我在理解艺术实践中对知识的贡献可以通过唤醒一个人的潜意识来实现，我称这种存在状态为“ 超现实 主义”。超现实主义就像一本基于艺术家潜意识的“绝对现实”自传，由艺术家操纵（书面解释或标 题）， 然后由观 众潜意识地解释。因为艺术是个人的和个人的；对艺术家来说是个人的；对观者来说是个 人的，反之亦然， 这就 决定了每个人是如何根据自己的潜意识来体验作品的。 通过探索创作过程和潜意识思维，我能够从视觉上 解读我的意识或我的绝对现实或“超现实”——学习如何 培养过 去和现在的记忆、情感、情感、对话和经 验，以发展我的作品。不存在于任何边界，创造出对我自己和我的 绝对 现实来说是纯洁、真实和独立的艺术。 对话-合成和分析的超现实主义我的倡议是扩大，丰富和培养艺术实践探索的方式，视觉结合质量（个人经 验）的 现象性品质和超现实主义的思维过程，形成视觉过程连接潜意识和自我的对话。对话是基于我的潜意识（1 ）经验 （2）本能的艺术实践（3）感觉，感觉和情感（4）解释/操作和（5）怀旧。 这是通过从我的潜意识中构造/解构qualia来实现的，并通过在原始画布上视觉地制作（缝制）一张新画布 和/或通 过撕下原始画布以露出下面一层较旧的画布来表达每一个。每一幅画布的构造（合成超现实主义）和解构（ 分析 超现实主义）代表一种潜意识思想。当这些思想或内心的声音共存时，它们开始产生对话。 通过我的潜意识思维模式和素质进行对话的想法成为我工作的前提。它首先将两幅人物画组合在一起，形成 一个新的（第三幅）人物。这些都是缝在画布上，没有加或减画布。然后我开始解构原来的画布以显示另一个画 布， 并将画布添加到原来的显示多个层。这种创作方法支持了一种新的艺术创作方式，即在高级思维的基础 上， 经常 同时画画布的正面和背面，并加上和减去画布。最近的工作随着我的工作的进展，我继续探索超 现实主义和 对话 ，使用从真实模型的比喻性手势画。我通过失去手臂、腿、头和脸来创造一个简单的主题，从而将它们最小 化。 然后我把它翻过来，制作出一个对称的图案，通常与第一个图案重叠，从而创造出第二个和第三个图案 或身 份—
—我有时会在原始图案之上或之下添加全新的图案，而不是对称的等效图案。每一个主题都有一个“内在的 声音” 开始形成对话。 新流行音乐我不关心完美对称的主题事实上我喜欢他们关闭，以便它创造了额外的兴趣，在 工作。我认为作 品应 该是“高质量”的，但艺术上的不完美、工艺上的不完善应该与作品有关。工作在我 的潜意识或超现实主 义，但没 有界限这一系列的工作与复杂的视觉对话和层次的思想，变得好玩和有趣， 标记为“新流行”。比波普艺术 和新波 普更复杂的是，它并没有复制已经应用的波普艺术概念。最后，我 的作品像一面镜子一样，反映了我的自省 引导 下的潜意识。我在艺术创作的进步层面上工作和思考。我利 用我对意识状态、绝对现实、观察/思考方式和创 作过 程的研究，将我的作品发展到一种更高的自我理解水 平，形成了我的潜意识、我和作品本身之间的联系。开 始具 有个人目的和意义的创作，以确定我作为一个 艺术家的身份和为什么我要创作，发展一种非限制性的艺术创 作方 式，没有边界，只有解构（分析超现实 主义）和构建（合成超现实主义）的思想、想法和对话。从我的潜意 识中 构建/解构信息（视觉和口头）， 并通过基于内在的输入（感觉和情感）层表达出来，创造一个视觉的表达 谱—— 剥离“自我”层以揭示一个绝对的自我。 “描述我的绘画是我内心的视觉本质。如果我撕开我的身体，我的 灵魂就会变成我作品的反射和色彩，用层 层的颜料和混合的媒介来表达 我的艺术是根据我是谁而发展的， 从我的环境到影响我的事物。潜意识变量是感知、观察、体验、梦想和感 觉。 它们经常被储存好几天，几 周，几年，几十年，并且可以被我一生中发生的各种事情所触发。探索、实验、 表达 、交流和解释都在创作过程中发挥着作用。这是一次进入艺术家生命和灵魂的旅程。 我强大的动力和雄心来 自于绘画和自我发现的乐趣，不断地扩展和审视我的意识状态和生活经验，并朝着一 种精 神上的简单化和 工作上的智力上的简单化前进。冲突变成关系；线条、形状和颜色变成朋友，相反的颜色变 成和 谐。
My Surreality Awakening the Subconscious.
The term Surreality was first mentioned in 1924 in the “First Manifesto of Surrealism” by Andre Breton in 1924 …
I believe in the future resolution of these two states, seemingly so contradictory, of dream and reality, in a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, so to speak.
Definition: Surreality is an absolute reality, a state of consciousness in which our thought process is created and true perceptions of individual reality are derived. Surreality is the underlying realities of people, places, things and emotions that make up our world based upon individual subconscious thoughts.
Introduction Surreality exists in one’s mind.
In Surreality the focus becomes more about the absolute reality of one’s’ subconscious and the feelings and emotions which guide it.
Surreality is an absolute reality to your meaning of life your absolute truth. It does not represent reality but instead is what you believe as true. It is where thoughts are transferred into interpretations of the outside world. Each person conceives their own interpretation therefore they compose their own absolute reality - down to the most basic feelings, colours and shapes.
Exploring our awareness (consciousness) and states of realities we can help determine how our subconscious interprets reality in which the creative process is realized, contributing to individual ideas and concepts for producing art. Creating art from our individual state of consciousness or Surreality where creativity connects with your subconscious (awakening your subconscious) and then manipulating, constructing or deconstructing it to form a new way to produce art. Ideas, perceptions, observations combined with feelings and emotions (including stored subconscious thoughts, visions and interpretations) dictate Surreality. It is the visual or written perspective of your absolute reality (or interpretation of it) and the experiences of your subconscious qualia - like a daydream where you are conscious of your subconscious, a place where creative thought process takes precedence over everything else; a state of mind where the awareness of your consciousness awakens your subconscious.
The “Manifesto of Surreality” so to speak, is born from previous art movements. Working within individual subconscious thought patterns and qualia to form visual layers of produced conversations - the dialogue developed becomes your theme of your work.
Like Cubism is divided in two parts: Analytical and Synthetic. The initiative is to expand, enrich and cultivate art practice by exploring ways to visually combine phenomenal qualities of qualia with thought processes of Surreality. The artist can realize this by creating visual processes linking dialogue and conversation(s) between subconscious and self. This can be achieved by using individual (1) personal experience (2) instinctive practice (3) feeling, sensation and emotion (4) interpretation and manipulation and (5) time. This approach to creativity, support a new way to produce art based on an advanced level of thinking.
The Surreality process begins with a simple motif gathered from figurative gestural drawings using actual models. The motif is simplified often losing arms, legs and face. To develop the conversation, dialogue or conflict, I use forms of symmetry, asymmetry and reverse imagery to produce another motif often overlapping the first motif thus creating a second and third motif or identity - I sometimes add completely new motifs on top of or below the original ones instead of the symmetrical equivalent. These “identities” start to become the “voices” in my head. Each motif has a separate voice; symmetrical opposites are dual in nature while others become entirely new entities. They are a visual representation of the inner voices inside my subconscious thoughts that start to communicate with one another forming dialog.
Colour and line are used to add personal feelings to the conversation which is now being visually distinguished by many voices. This dialogue begins to open doors of multiple conversations that are mortifying the subconscious thoughts extending the argument or directing it toward a new train of thought or a completely new argument.
Analysis of the original conversation is then deconstructed (Analytical Surreality) or constructed (Synthetic Surreality) by means of subtraction and addition. Subtracting from the work or conversation reveals a new subconscious layer that may or may not relate to the argument. It reveals itself taking on any creative form such as: solid colour (feeling), pattern / texture (emotion), imagery and even writing thus creating multiple abstract systems of revealing subconscious thought below the surface.
Subtracting (Analytical) from the work is realized by actual tearing or scratching or cutting the canvas. The cut-outs are flipped over exposing the underside of the canvas which adds to the conversation or qualia, a painting within a painting inside out and twisted. This reveals a resolution or solution to the initial argument or possibly adds another layer or dimension to it. The shape or hole that is left over is patched underneath and sewn together revealing yet another layer of subconscious thought. Often the figures or central motifs are sewn together to form the new motif. Sewing also serves as a way to show subconscious layers of the artwork and to visually express coloured line - they are like comments to the conversation.
Additive (Synthetic) measures are used in which subconscious thoughts or memories are represented with found or artist-made objects and repressive thoughts and memories are being concealed by artist-painted masks. This serves as a bandage or manipulation technique to repress unpleasant subconscious thoughts that might arise and allow others to show themselves. It is the art or gathering of information (past and present) to support, misinterpret or disguise the argument.

他在绘画前端思考和创作，使用不同的心理基本特征，如形状、色彩和色调和谐。这些特征一目了 然，但通过彼此之间的关系来感知和感受内在本质。这些关系似乎在作品之间创造了一个对话，同时 作品和观众之间也产生了思想交流。冲突变成关联；线条、形状和颜色变成朋友，对比色变成和谐。 他用画笔描绘抽象的感情和情感。就像一面镜子，他的作品反映了他反省之下所引导的潜意识。
Richard thinks and works on an advanced level of painting, using a myriad of different psychological aspects such as the fundamental properties of colour, colour harmonies and shape. All are apparent, but perceived and felt intrinsically by their relationships with each other. These relationships seem to create a dialog between the work, and communication between the piece and the viewer. Conflicts become relationships; line, shape and colour become friends, and opposite colours become harmonies. He paints abstract feelings and emotions. Like a mirror, his work reflects the subconscious guided by his introspection.

此刻的心情。 当下的觉悟。意识的清醒状态。潜意识过程的局促。理查德深刻地经历了一个人的生 活。他继续审视和扩展他的意识状态和生活经验，朝着一种智力简化和精神简化的方向发展。
The mood of a certain moment. The awareness of right now. The strangeness of the subconscious process. And the state of awakening consciousness. Richard experiences explicitly the life of an individual. He continues to examine and expand his state of consciousness and life experience that progresses towards a kind of intellectual simplification and spiritual simplification.

New Pop – Richard Feinman
New Pop is an ongoing series based on the Surreality or absolute reality of my interpretation of my subconscious. It is based on relationships between symmetrical or asymmetrical motifs with added elements of found objects or nostalgia of past memories. These relationships form conversations between the work itself; between myself and the piece and the piece and the viewer. I frequently gather “painting oddities (objects)” and up-cycle popular culture packaging that I may or may not use in my multimedia work. I often produce sculptural items attaching them to the work and create small paintings that I sew onto (constructing) or underneath (deconstructing) the canvas to represent layers of subconscious thought adding a new dimension to my work. It’s like a painting within a painting, a dream within a dream.

超现实就像一本自传，是一个人基于艺术家潜意识的“绝对现实”。 艺术家给出标题和文字说明， 然后由观赏者下意识地去理解。
Surreality is like an autobiography of one’s “absolute reality” based on the subconscious of the artist. Written explanation or title, it is manipulated by the artist and then interpreted subconsciously by the viewer.
