Magnificent, Marvellous, Mighty Monday and REMEDIOS VARO
If you feel your imagination needs a mega shot of inspiration then explore the fey, mystical artworks of Remedios Varo, one of my favourite painters when I was at art school.
Her miniature works are tiny fantastical worlds in themselves. When I'm feeling as if life has become rather grey and beige, I love to make a cup of tea and lose myself in her beautiful, intelligent and surreal creations. I highly recommend her biography Unexpected Journeys by Janet A Kaplan – Varo’s life equals her art.
And so for Magnificent, Marvellous, Mighty Mondays, let us explore the unlimited boundaries of creation and pay homage to the fascinating Remedios Varo!
