In a new show at Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco, Miss Van’s work is shown alongside an artist born 70 years before her, yet also exploring both surrealist and feminine sensibilities. A dialogue occurs between Van’s new work and that of Leonor Fini, who the spot says “was arguably the most ferociously and heroically independent woman artist of the 20th century.” Fini passed away in 1996.

“[The show] interweaves two artistic provocateurs for a uniquely feminine representation of the surrealist concept of convulsive beauty in both the historic avant-garde and contemporary urban art,” the gallery says, in a statement. “The exhibition, like convulsive beauty itself, attempts to challenge the constraints of social norms and mores by freely expressing the subconscious world of dreams, desire and true emotions.”
