Surreal still life compositions typically fall into the broader category of “surrealism” within the realm of art. Surrealism is an artistic movement that emerged in the early 20th century, focusing on expressing the subconscious mind and exploring the irrational aspects of human existence. Surrealism often involves dreamlike or fantastical imagery, unexpected juxtapositions, and an emphasis on the subconscious and the unconscious mind. Within surrealism, still life compositions that incorporate elements of the surreal would be considered a subcategory, blending elements of traditional still life with the imaginative and often bizarre imagery characteristic of surrealism.
