Gustav Holst 1875-1934 “Gustav Holst 1875-1934”

In this piece the subject interact with their environment in an unreal form, the two worlds create a sense of juxtaposition, creating a scene of surreal magic and wonder between man, the planets and music. Surreal art aspires toward the liberation of the mind and artistic expression. Gustav Holst 1875-1934 was one of the most original composers of his generation. He is remembered today for his popular orchestral work The Planets. Along with many of his contemporaries, Holst drew inspiration from the revival in interest in the English folk music tradition.

Frederick Douglass “Frederick Douglass”

Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) was an American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. An American leader who fought tirelessly for equality and freedom. He was the founding father whose outstanding contributions to society broke ground, broke colour barriers, and changed the course of history. Frederick was born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey. He was born into slavery in Maryland in 1818. Although both of his parents were enslaved people, Frederick never really knew his mother as she worked on a different plantation, and he never met his father.

Later, when Frederick married, he chose the last name Douglass after the hero clan in Sir Walter Scott's famous poem, Lady of the Lake.

Into the Forest “Into the Forest”

This artwork is made using the camera and digital art technology which enabled me to create a dynamic pieces of artwork from the photograph, unlike anything I have created before, which focuses on emotion and the expression of it through feeling in an alternate vision. This digitalised artwork was inspired by a walk in the woods, where I took a photo of my daughter hugging a tree, forest bathing. This is a new facet of my art, that has allowed me to branch out. I am exploring the different fine art digital styles and types. Printed on lambda print on fuji crystal archive dp ii paper. Modern Surrealism is about creating unexpected visual juxtapositions to surprise the viewer and pull them into a world of the artist's imagination.

Eleanor Roosevelt “Eleanor Roosevelt”

Eleanor Roosevelt 1884-1962. This pioneering First Lady was an incredible force for human rights and progress for women. This wonderful lady held press conferences, wrote for magazines, hosted a radio show and gave lectures. She even donated most of her income to charity.

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was the longest-serving First Lady throughout her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt's four terms in office (1933-1945). She was an American politician, diplomat, and activist who later served as a United Nations spokeswoman.

We must want our fellow human beings to have rights and freedoms which give them dignity and which will give them a sense that they are human beings that can walk the earth with their heads high and look all men in the face.

She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. Following her husband's death in 1945, Roosevelt remained active in politics for the remaining 17 years of her life.

Issac Newton and Apple “Issac Newton and Apple”

Issac Newton was born 1642, England. His father died three months before his birth. His mother remarried when Issac was three years old, and she left Issac with his grandparents. He grew up alone. Later he went to Cambridge University, however, in 1665-67 he left Cambridge because of the Great Plague. Legend has it that Newton got his inspiration for gravity during this period. He saw an apple fall from a tree on his farm, which lead him to ask why the apple fell straight down, rather than sideways or even upward. He showed that the force that makes the apple fall and that holds us on the ground is the same as the force that keeps the moon and planets in their orbits. Which lead to the theory of gravity, which I turn helped to explain the movement of the planets and the sun. He is quoted as saying “if I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.

In 1727, at the age of 84, Sir Isaac Newton died in his sleep and was buried with pomp and ceremony in Westminster Abbey in London.
