"Born in 1908, Anglés Cataluña Spain. Died 1963, Mexico City.
Remedios Varo is probably one least known of the great Surrealist painters, even though she is rumored to have taken classes together with Salvado Dalí. Her presentation of dreams, imagery and symbolism has a unique style all its own, entriely fanatastic, yet still full of subtle wit and enigma.
In 1942 she moved to Mexico City with her husband, Benjamin Péret, to escape the nazi occupation of France. It was in Mexico that she painted many of her finest works."
"Varo used imagery in her work related to her father's profession. Fantastic and complex pieces of machinery recur throughout her work relating to her studies of alchemy theories and processes. Her figures, autobiographical in many respects, are fantastic, often incorporating science, dreams, witchcraft, and humor into psychological and spiritual journeys."
