Pynchon is reduced to a isolated litmus paper that emerges from total isolation to administer The Test. However, he is a baby bird fallen from its nest into a pond of piranha fish that make up the illusionary world of Hollywood.

“According to the author of Remedios Varo: Unexpected Journeys, Pynchon saw Bordando el Manto Terrestre (“Embroidering Earth’s Mantle”) when, as part of the first full retrospective of the painter’s work, it was displayed at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City in 1964, a year after her death at the age of 55.
She was a regular visitor to the Prado Museum and took particular interest in the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch, most notably The Garden of Earthly Delights. Renaissance art inspired harmony, tonal nuances, unity, and narrative structure in Varo’s paintings. The allegorical nature of much of Varo’s work especially recalls the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch, and some critics, such as Dean Swinford, have described her art as “postmodern allegory,” much in the tradition of Irrealism.”
