Inspired by Art Herstory: Remedios Varo’s “Celestial Pablum” (1958)

We found this image here.

“In Varo’s Celestial Pablum, an isolated woman sits in a lonely tower, a blank expression on her face, and mechanically grinds up stars which she feeds to an insatiable moon. The somber palette and mat surface cast their own pall over the work [paintings such as this] are remarkable for their powerful imagining of the conflicts inherent in maternity: the physical changes initiated by pregnancy and lactation, the mother’s exhaustion and feared loss of autonomy.”

-Whitney Chadwick, Women, Art, and Society (1996)
