Remedios Varo

(1908-1963), Spain/Mexico


Delve into the fascinating world of Remedios Varo, an artist who united art, science and mysticism to create a worldview that had never been proposed. In this masterclass, we will focus on six of Varo's most iconic paintings to better understand her artistic style, her revolutionary life and the underlying concepts that inform her paintings that distance her dramatically from Surrealism. For example, Varo was deeply fascinated by Einstein’s Relativity, Alchemy and Magic, combining her knowledge to produce an outcome that anticipated many of the contemporary theories of modern physics. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to deepen your understanding of Varo's life and work and develop your own critical and analytical skills as you explore the connections between art, science, and culture.
