Leonora Carrington acted as a minor influence to our work as we considered using objects and symbols to represent our identities. Carrington’s surrealist paintings are filled with ethereal and magical realism that reflect her own experiences. Often sinister figures are depicted as well as elongated women, half human/wolf hybrids, faces located within bodies and lizard like snakes. Symbols of the occult or religious symbols are also present. Hazel, Ellie and I did consider using symbols such as this but we are yet to develop this in our board pieces.
