Los Angeles based artist Megan Whitmarsh grew up in the 70's and 80's, and, like many of her generation, uses the visual noise of her youth as inspiration, rather than the history of painting. She makes drawings, comics, hand-embroidered pieces and soft sculptures. Her themes can best be visually described as scenes of fantasy characters existing amongst the detritus of the modern world. They can best be conceptually described as the artist's attempt to reconcile the ataxia of the modern world with an optimistic vision of the future dictated by an internal logic and supernatural iconography. Whitmarsh sees her current artistic process as a slightly evolved continuation of her childhood practices of illustrating Buffy Sainte-Marie songs and making comic books about rabbits watching Mork and Mindy.
