A walking, smiling poem, which turns into a shadow, which turns into a parasol, which turns into a bird, which turns into a fish, and then disappears.

— Octavio Paz

My previous posts on the great Mexican artist, and last of the surrealists, here, and here.   Rita Pomade (MexConnect) had a fine article on Carrington and Mexico City in the sixties not too long ago.

(And, in a late addition: There is an excellent post on Carrington by Joanna van der Gracht de Rosado, who like the late artist, realized it wasn’t so crazy to marry into Mexico 🙂 at Writings from Merida)
