In Beyond Reality by Tretchikoff, the surrealist artwork invites viewers into a world where the boundaries between dreams and reality blur. The artist deliberately leaves room for interpretation, encouraging each observer to derive their own meaning from the imagery presented. At the core of the piece is the symbolism of the eye as a representation of reality, watching over a dreamlike landscape.

The artwork suggests a contrast between the tangible, visible world represented by the eye, and the intangible, fantastical realms of the soul's dreams. It explores the idea that while our physical bodies may be confined to earthly limitations, our imaginations and spiritual essence can transcend into realms of endless wonder and joy, particularly in the state of sleep where dreams offer glimpses of enchantment.

Through the juxtaposition of the eye symbolising reality and the dream world symbolising the soul's aspirations, Tretchikoff delves into existential themes of life, death, and the pursuit of hidden truths. The contemplative nature of the artwork prompts viewers to reflect on the complexities of human existence, urging them to ponder what lies beyond the visible and tangible aspects of life that the eye perceives.
