The Magic Realism. Yes, this is what Gonsalves is associated. His paintings are a visual example of two contradictory forces that exist simultaneously. Just as the painting above shows, the man seems floating in the lake of the forest, but from another perspective, he should be floating in the space.

As Gonsalves says, his magic realistic paintings are his attempt to connect the experiences we have between two separate worlds. Didn't we all, from time to time, feel that we are in another world, just as Gonsalves' paintings?
