Theme:
Swap Due Date –June 16, 2021
Signup/withdraw Date: June 10th
Number of Cards: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of Participants – Unlimited
Media – Mixed Media Collage

For this swap, you will create surreal scenes using collage/ mixed media technique. You will be blending fantasy and reality through an irrational juxtaposition of collaged images. Keep in mind you are creating scenes, not just a random display of images, and if you include characters, they should be incorporated into a scene as well. Here is a link (https://www.google.com/search?q=surrealism+collage+scene&safe=strict&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjZmZuRgOzvAhUUQ80KHS93BjgQ_AUoAXoECAEQA w&biw=1200&bih=642) for inspiration, ...and for those of you who have pinterest: here (https://www.pinterest.com/barox818/surrealism/) , but let your imagination run wild!

For those struggling for ideas, you can consider:
sci-fi themes.
distopian/utopian themes
characters manipulating their environment in ways which reality wouldn't allow.
two environments that would never meet coming together. (morphing together, breaking through another etc)
an unlikely item replacing another (like Spottedcrow's (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?37931-Scenes-in-Surrealism-ATC-Collage-Swap-Due-June-16&p=2111060#post2111060) fruit slice for a sun.)
a literal take on puns, or idioms (I often utilize "eye in the sky")
something larger than life. (elliejaybird (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=565742) has a dinosaur as big as a house) or smaller than usual
I'll add more as we come up with them and will likely add it into the description.

Some famous surrealist painters that might inspire collage work are Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Vladimir Kush, and for darker themes Zdzislaw Beksinski.

Card Guidelines:
Each card standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
Each card must be original and unique.
Any embellishments must be relatively flat and lightweight.
Each card should be on a sturdy background and must be in an individual plastic sleeve
Label each card with at least swap name and your username....real name, location and date are also a good idea to add

Mailing Guidelines:
~Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
~Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your return cards.
~if you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns.
~If you are mailing internationally, please provide either a U.S. Forever stamp or a well-concealed $1 bill.
I also take Paypal if you'd rather go that route.

*When you are ready to mail your cards, please just private message me for my address. If you have it from an earlier swap, it has not changed.
*iTraders will be given when cards are received by me.
*Please note that cards must be received by the due date. No cards and no communication will result in neutral iTrader. You may withdraw any time before the due date, but to ensure cards received on time Im asking you to sign up by no later than 6/10
*A host card would be greatly appreciated and loved, but is never required.
*Please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and You Rocks! for the artists that created your return cards when you receive them.

Players:
names turn blue (linked for rep points) once cards are received

Great! I cant wait to see!... and Im sure other players could use some inspiration.

BArox818
04-26-2021, 08:43 AM
For those struggling for ideas, consider sci-fi themes.
distopian/utopian themes
characters manipulating their environment in ways which reality wouldn't allow.
two environments that would never meet coming together. (morphing together, breaking through another etc)
an unlikely item replacing another (like Spottedcrow's fruit slice for a sun.)
a literal take on puns, or idioms (I often utilize "eye in the sky")
something larger than life. (elliejaybird has a dino as big as a house) or smaller.
I'll add more as we come up with them and will likely add it into the description.

Some famous surrealist painters that might inspire collage work are Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Vladimir Kush, and for darker themes Zdzislaw Beksinski.

Feel free to post your creations/ideas/findings for inspiration.

Yes! Most images are just too big! I've been having a lot of luck with product catalogs though..Always small images as they try to fit the most they can on a page. Most online stores will send you catalogs for free in hopes that you'll see something you like. Three of my favorites are Bette's Attic, Collections ETC, and LTD Commodities

Lurking with intent. I have a card done, though it may be more absurdist rather than surreal. But the surrealist also liked some absurd things, and I may just be overthinking this.

Lol...cant wait to see this! :D
Im gonna go with it's probably fine... The only requirements is that its a collage scene that brings fantasy and reality together. Any interpretation beyond that is entirely up to the artist. There is an extremely wide range of directions you can take it.

Okay I'm in. Here are my first two.

222828 222829

I couldn't help myself and both are titled.

The first is: The storm god Borislav could stir up quite a squall, but the savvy captain knew that playing PJ Harvey songs from Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea, would lead to good fortune and safe passage.

The second is: Bank employees head to work

The first one is on the creepier side of surrealism:

First i signed up for this swap and then realized i had no magazine images. So I withdrew. But then i decided I still that this was an interesting theme, so I bought 2 more magazines and used my extra calendars.
I made 3 cards and one host one. Since I had already made 4, I made 2 more. Actually I ended up with 7 cards but I liked 6 better. So BArox818, you get postage as your host gift. Once you figure out what you are doing, this is really fun.

My cards are in my mailbox.

Hmmm... Sounds like a plan ;) ...perhaps with a twist to make it a bit different than this one. Next time: "Elements of Surrealism" and incorporate one(or more) of the four elements of nature on each card. Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. :idea:

I have just been having a look through, they are so funny, crazy, inventive, I love them. I hope this comes up again, in the meantime I persuaded my Zoom art group to have surrealism as its theme, yay!!

Two weeks to due date, One week left open for signups. Keep in mind: mail has been slow ever since the start of Covid. If I haven’t heard from you yet about mailing, I’ll be reaching out by the end of the week.

ALL cards are now here!! It has been most exciting hosting this swap. You are all soooo creative and I’m so excited for you all to receive your returns. I will be sending out Itrader over the next day or two then sorting and sending cards out (possibly a few days early) You will not be disappointed. Every card in the bunch is awesome! I thoroughly enjoyed this theme and glad you all did as well. I WILL be hosting another similar theme swap within the next few weeks for those who were interested and would love to have you all again! I’ll post here when it’s up, and also when cards are sent.

I lead a very small group of artists who make monthly ATCs. their theme for July will be surrealism. Scary when you start but once you get going, it is so much fun!
