Salvador Dali at Capella

The resourceful Travelling Gourmet goes to Bob’s Bar in Capella Hotel to see…

MASTER of surrealism Salvador Dali’s art pieces on display by Opera Gallery.  There were 27 pieces ranging from S$14,000 to S$58,500 which is suprisingly affordable for such a famous artist. I particularly liked “Homage to Newton” with its moving pendulum priced at S$14,000, as well as “Space Venus”, the most expensive piece for sale at S$58,500. I sipped Taittinger Champagne NV and munched on Salmon Confit and Tomato Tartare as I admired the surreal art pieces. “Space Elephant” was another wierd and wonderful example of Dalinian symbolism with the phallic like obelisk on top of the long legged elephant symbolising technology.

As Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dali i Domenech always said: The one thing in the world we can never have enough is the outrageous. {:-)
