NOW REPRESENTING LEELA CORMAN

Leela Corman’s comics are riddled with explicit self-portraits, beautifully rendered. And many of her characters look remarkably like her. Corman was brought up on the isle of Manahatta (Lenape land), but spends much of her imagination in the Old World, in the Europe of World War II. Her ancestral departure from that world has left in her a wound that never heals. Leela has a second, a deeper wound that never heals.  Her first daughter, her first child, for no apparent reason, at two-years-old, died in bed. She offers her stories as inoculations.  As she says, “Each one is like a gigantic lullaby for people whose grief is exhausting.  A cave to crawl into, where our sorrow is seen, and we are allowed to rest.” Please click below to link to her Artist page, replete with images, press, publications.

NOW REPRESENTING GABRIELLE BELL

Gabrielle’s autobiographical stories feature minutely detailed foibles that spark delighted or embarrassed recognition. She makes art, travels to comics conventions, talks and walks and eats with friends, visits her mom in her shack in the woods.  She practices yoga – Bikram yoga in a tent in her apartment rigged with two electric heaters that short out the whole building in the dead of winter…. She has relationships with assorted unsatisfactory guys. She meditates with various unsatisfactory gurus. Her streams of consciousness while sitting in meditation interest me particularly. A typical Gabrielle Bell line: “Cruel mind, playing malicious tricks on myself.” This is quoted from her small 2016 book Get Out Your Hankies (Because You’re Gonna Be Bored to Tears).Please click below to link to her Artist page, replete with images, press, publications.
