I’m headed to Germany for the first time since I was a toddler!
My solo show GURLS opens with a preview Thursday, April 13th from 6-8pm (first 20 people get a signed mini print) and then the reception on Friday, April 14th at FB69 Galerie in Münster.
We will have limited copies of my sold-out zine on hand, as well as a show of all my drawings. There will be posters for sale, too! I hope to see you there, and I’m really excited to spend some time in this city.
GURLS was conceived in sketchbooks while Arabella was recovering in bed from multiple surgeries, and oil painting was no longer an option. Sarcastic, silly, and in a loose style that deviates from the painting she has been known for, her GURLS comment on the current state of technology, relationships, and “first world problems”.
Very unexpectedly, I sold out of my first run of US printing for my zine GURLS, which was made initially for my solo show of the same name opening at FB69 Galerie in Germany next month on April 14th. (Yes I will be in attendance if you are near Munster!)
I didn’t get a chance to make a formal announcement, it was just posted throughout my social media outlets, but the US edition sold out within 9 hours!
There will be a second run up for sale in my shop starting Friday, March 17th at 10:30am ET.
GURLS is 70+ glossy pages of my drawings and snappy sarcastic comments to accompany them. Truth be told, I write them in the voice of Bobby Brown if he were yelling real loud, so I hope that enhances your experience. I know a lot of you have told me you want a copy and missed out last weekend, so set your alarms because I can’t “save a copy” for you even if you know me in the meat world.
