What Is Dipsomanic Realism?
A post modern, late 20th/early 21st century, representational art style built upon two concepts:
Dipsomanic; is a historical term that was used in 19th century clinical psychiatry to describe a sudden irresistible need to drink alcohol (especially in bars). These events recur at indeterminate intervals, separated by periods when the subject is generally sober and may even manifest a temporary repugnance for alcohol and a passing remorse over his or her conduct.
Realism; with Dipsomanic Realism the viewer always recognizes what they are looking at.
