    Autoerotismo/Selferotism (fallimento dell'impossibile - FAILING THE IMPOSSIBLE)
    acrylic on canvas,

    'Nothing we are,
    but the impressions that we have
    about ourselves.'

    In Attempting the Impossible, Magritte shows himself painting a naked woman into thin air. Women and strong colors dominate many of his early works. In 1925, Magritte abandoned his experiments with abstraction and decided 'only to paint objects with all their visible details'. By displaying objects in strange situations he could 'challenge the real world'. Paradox and contrast became a recurring motif in Magritte's work. Two separate concepts are brought together and hybridized, taking certain pieces of each to create a new concept. In The Empire of Lights, 1954, a night landscape shines under a day lit sky.
