Remedios Varo

Stumbling upon this wonderful surrealist Mexican Artist – Remedios Varo, who created a lot of paintings that experimented with fabric form and the environment. What is most significant about her work, and how she regarded her own work, was that she saw surrealism as a world in which the limits of Cubism can be tested. For her, this sytle and her method of painting was used to communicate the incommunicable. She uses fashion and her interpretation of fabric to elevate her mostly female subjects within the genre of Surrealism that typically tended to degrade the female form. For me what is interesting here is the how the fabric manages to turn many corners and morph into the environment within the frame.
