mike worrall does ladies of la mer

lately i've been having reoccurring dreams//nightmares of the sea. these paintings by surrealist visionary mike worrall (who's been making these beauties since the late 70's!) reflect those dreams for me, as well as my usual attachments to the metaphors of flooded interiors & masked women. i also particularly love the french time period evoked here and the heavy dresses, that in other works appear so large, they look like tables.
