“Peer and perceive,” René Magritte’s works seem to whisper. We live in a world of conflicting images, yet their meanings escape us. In the created world born of Magritte’s artistic imagination, objects and images clamour for attention; they knock on the mind’s door and remind one of the magical potential of everyday things.
