Associated with the surrealist period, Edith Rimmington attends weekly meetings of the surrealists in London. Together with another of the city's surrealists, Indian-English, Ithell Colquhoun, she practices automatic writing and automatic drawing, a technique for creating art in an almost trance-like state.
Edith Remmington's works are shown at major exhibitions of surrealist art and many of her texts and drawings are published in journals on surrealism.
Remmington participates, at Andre Breton's invitation, in the exhibition, Le Surrealisme en 1947, at the Galerie Maeght in Paris. In the 1950s, Rimmington moved from London to Sussex and from now on mainly focused on photography.
