“Salvador Dali stirs you. You cannot pass by, untouched, even if you hate it. You are never indifferent. Indifference is the worst that can happen to an artwork,” says Susanna Strem, the owner of Chali-Rosso Art Gallery on South Granville. She believes Vancouver is ready for her Definitely Dali exhibit of 10 sculptures from the Dali Sculpture Collection (which complement her existing collection of Dali lithographs.) “There are always lots of layers and the more you look at them, the more you discover,” Strem says of his iconic work. She loves the contrasts, imagery and “that everything is possible in his mind.”
