Sabbath

Remedios Varo

Remedios Varo's lunar-lit visions of sabbaths and seances, tucked away in the shadowy corner of surrealism's big box of wonder, sparkle with the kind of magic all art does when it breaks with tradition. A reflection not of the inner or the outer, Varo's work spins a web around its own nether-space, and one I love to visit every once in a while, lest I lose myself in the horror of reality: who says magic doesn't exist?
