BEAUTY: Painting and Drawing-- Adriana Varejão

I will confess that I have had a recurring dream for most of my adult life about places like saunas, large public bathrooms, spas, and pool areas. The common element, of course, is tile.Often these places are underground (almost like subterranean caves and grottoes). In Jungian psychology, water may represent the subconscious. I have spent time in inner life in many environments that are completely tiled and Brazilian artist Adriana Varejão really taps into my visual dream language with her fascinating Saunas and Baths series of drawings and paintings.
