Leonora Carrington: The Celtic Surrealist
Frida Kahlo may have once referred to her as one of “those European bitches”, but Leonora Carrington’s legacy shouldn’t be limited to that slight. One of the few female members of the Surrealist boys’ club, Carrington has long been revered in Mexico, where she resided until her death. However, it is only in recent years that her achievements have come to be recognised on this side of the Atlantic. This despite the fact that her mother hails from Co. Westmeath and Celtic imagery figures heavily in her work. This retrospective, which is comprised of both paintings and sculptures, highlights the influence that both Celtic and Mexican folklore had on her work. (Think Día de los Muertos meets The Cattle Raid of Cooley.) Fantastical and dreamy, vivid and beguiling, consider it a long-overdue primer to Carrington and her magical world. / Amy O’Connor
