I'm in the process of writing an appreciative article on the surrealist artist, poet and magician Margaret Ithell Colquhoun. I'm wondering if anyone on the site actually met her before her death in 1988? If so, would you be willing to talk to me about her?
If so, please feel free to PM me.
Thanks in advance!
ANDROGYNES & AUTOMATISM: The Soul Wanderings of the Surrealist Ithell Colquhoun
Painter, poet, magician and antiquarian, Margaret Ithell Colquhoun (1906-1988) spent her life exploring the avenues of her soul, mapping this otherworld and capturing in her art experiences of the strange forces she encountered there.
Her quest was to remedy that perennial perception of modern humanity a sense of separation from Nature.
This view of Nature was no chocolate box romantic notion rather it was a strange place; perhaps best personified by the Greek god Pan. The task of this early psychonaut was to re-dream the world; to discover a new myth for our time.
