Surreal Spaces Zusammenfassung

Surreal Spaces: The Life and Art of Leonora Carrington Joanna Moorhead

An illustrated biography of the remarkable and pioneering artist Leonora Carrington, told through the houses and locations that had meaning for her and are fundamental to an understanding of her work.

An evocative visual chronicle on the life of Leonora Carrington as seen through interiors, international locations and vintage photographs, this book leads the reader on a personal journey through the many spaces she inhabited and which infused and haunted her art and the people she knew.

Long underrated, Carrington is now considered as one of the vanguard, not only in histories of women artists but also Surrealism; her interests - feminism, ecology and life-enhancing art - are now shared by many. Challenging the conventions of her time, Carrington abandoned family, society and England to embrace new experiences and mix with artists in Europe and America, and to forge her own unique artistic style.

From Lancashire to London, Cornwall to France and Spain, then to Mexico, New York and finally back to Mexico, each place and interior became etched in her memory - whether her grandmother's kitchen with its giant stove, Parisian cafes, a rural French hideaway, the sanatorium in Santander or her Mexican sanctuary - only to be echoed, sometimes decades later, in her paintings and writings. 'Houses are really bodies,' she wrote in her novella The Hearing Trumpet (1974), 'We connect ourselves with walls, roofs, and objects just as we hang on to our livers, skeletons, flesh and blood streams.'

Surreal Spaces Bewertungen

'An enjoyable and important account of one of the greatest artists of the surrealist movement whose relevance has only strengthened with time. Moorhead recounts Carrington's life as if a collection of stories, each one building to produce a memorable impression of the eccentric and wonderful Leonora Carrington' - Katy Hessel
'Leonora leaps off the page in this fascinating biography of Britain's peripatetic Surrealist. Moorhead's fresh and personal account is every inch as compelling as Carrington's mesmeric paintings' - Charlotte Mullins
