An interesting collection of experimental art

Dr. Smarandache is truly a renaissance man in the classical sense. His doctorate is in mathematics and he is the author of several books and many research papers. He has also written a prodigious amount of poetry and other verse and was nominated for the Nobel prize in literature in 1999. The founder of the paradoxist literary movement, he is a self-proclaimed anti-literary literary. Paradoxism is a form of writing where internal contradictions are used. The motto of the movement is "All is possible, the impossible too."
This book is a collection of his artwork, which he also describes as paradoxist. The works are of an avant-garde nature, with a great deal of symbolism and free form. Although I have spent my share of time in art galleries and have viewed works by the masters, I must confess that some of the work was beyond me. Which is probably what the author intended when he set out to create his experimental art. In my own defense, I did find much of the work enjoyable and occasionally I leafed back to re-examine a piece and contrast it with a later one.
The art in this book is often quite good and certainly comparable to some of the professional work that I have viewed. The book is one more contribution from a very talented man.
