December 20, 2013- last minute gift idea: Gallery Girls by Mary Blakemore. You can get it at CoWorker Projects.
The collages and comic strips in this collection are at their heart about the arrow of time. They are concerned with change, regret, and the impossibility of going backwards. These themes are explored obliquely, sometimes with humor within the context of a fictional art world. Published online between 2008 and 2011 they represent the first steps taken by a young artist. The project allowed Blakemore to blur the boundaries of her identity as well as the boundaries between fiction and reality.
