Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
There is on series of photographs by Arthur Tress your question makes me think of!. It is called "shadows"!. It's a sprititual narrative composed entirely out of shadows and objects are combined in a way that their shadows make new phantastical things (it impossible to tell what the object are)!. Though I had a short look, I can't find those images on the internet, but I know that they are all published in a book about Arthur Tress!.

As far as painting goes Remedio Varo might be somebody you may to look at!. She is a surrealist painter!. Max Ernst may be somebody else!. I think there are plenty of painters who contrast on feelings, Frieda Kahlo's paintings are all about feelings, though the subject is less dreamlike than say Remedio Varo's!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
