Remedios Varo, Recuerdo de la Walkyria (Memory of the Valkyrie)
I went to the LACMA show In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States. Today I am sharing some images of art that moved me by Remedios Varo. This is part one of two posts I will make with images by this artist.
Remedios Varo, Papilla estelar (Celestial Pablum)
Remedios was born in Spain, but fled to Paris during the Spanish Civil War. She moved to Mexico due to the Nazi occupation of France. Mexico is were she spent the remainder of her life.
Remedios Varo, Gato hombre (Cat Man)
She generally worked in oils on masonite panels that she prepared herself. I hadn't seen the artwork of this surrealist artist before this exhibit, I found myself very drawn to her works.

I did manage to complete my painting for Nibblefest, she is shown below and is on eBay here.
She is titled "Café au Lait" and is a 5"x7" original acrylic painting on canvas.
