Born in 1969

Ask me anything   Born in the tail of 1969, the entire 1970s were my backdrop.

British-born painter, writer and sculptor Leonora Carrington,  considered one of the last of the original surrealists, has died,  Mexico’s National Arts Council confirmed Thursday. She was 94.
Carrington  was known for her haunting, dreamlike works that often focused on  strange ritual-like scenes with birds, cats, unicorn-like creatures and  other animals as onlookers or seeming participants.
Once the lover  of German artist Max Ernst, Carrington was also part of a famous wave  of artistic and political emigres who arrived in Mexico in the 1930s and  ’40s. In the male-dominated realm of surrealism, she was a member of a  rare trio of Mexico-based female surrealists along with Frida Kahlo and  Remedios Varo.
