Yes, I’m quite a fan. I love the Mexican surrealists – though I suppose technically, Varo was Spanish-Mexican having been born in Spain. I’m not sure if she was a Mexican citizen.

Here’s an interesting (though I like the original by Varo better) variation or homage to Varo’s Spiral Transit, by Enrique Chavarria (1927-1998):

In any regard, Remedios Varo along with Alfred Kubin remain two of my favourite surrealist artists. Together with the work of Giovanni Battista Piranesi they have been the backdrop to my literary efforts over the past year.
