ANDRE MASSON (4/1/1896 - 28/10/87) Labyrinth/ The Towers of Sleep.

Masson was influenced by Freud, his work represented an attempt to gain access to unconscious thought through automatic techniques. Starting with a web of rapidly formed lines he worked until images began to suggest themselves., concentrating on the moment of metamorphosis when forms were in the process of turnin into someting else.
The Surrealists believed that madness, too, unlocked the doors to the unconscious,.
