Amber & Linda Neely: The Mother-Daughter Project

This project began as a collision of surrealist creativity. The mother is a professional artist with an MFA degree and an in-depth knowledge and love for surrealism in all its forms. She has given lectures and classes on surrealism and created a lot of it herself! One day she discovered her own daughter’s exquisite, ethereal poetry! As she read it, her jaw dropped at the eerie phrases, nearly making sense and then. . . not. The mother was intrigued and, being an artist, imagery began popping and flowing into her head. She wondered what these poems would look like! The daughter wondered too and thus began the Mother-Daughter Project.
