Dalí’s Mystic Elements and their Meaning


  • Ticiana Dine


The entire study is based on the connection between the symbolisms that Dalí uses in his artworks as well as what Freud uses as scientific terminology in his research studies about the experiences of his patients. How Freud sees and analyzes them mainly when drawers and other elements similar to those emptied and filled are present in humans neurosis, or paranoids and how Dalí makes interweaving precisely with this element into his surreal works by analyzing them as symbols which represent emptiness of soul but at the same time represents not only a need but why not also a sexual femininity through this symbol. What is taken for study is duplication and comparison between a doctor and an artist who takes the role of a doctor making besides a symbolic and artistic analysis but first of all also an analytical context. If Freud makes this study on patients and their similar experiences, Dalí does this with its audience. This type of comparison and duplication in terms of perception or the way the patients dream or how understand and perceive it the observers in an art gallery, it makes me rise an analysis point. I did it comparing the two prominent figures very much internationally recognized whom were far and near to each other.
