Blood and Roses: Magical Girls by Sally Jane Thompson
19/07 to 03/08

Sally Jane Thompson

Blood and Roses is an ongoing series of drawings and paintings by comic creator Sally Jane Thompson, inspired by the magical girl genre. Works that are equal parts bold and delicate use the genre’s kitsch, decorative aesthetic, and ambiguous use of traditionally feminine visual motifs, as a space to play in. They explore representations of female hero narratives, conflict and strength through images featuring lively, soulful characters who seem to have stories to tell.

The exhibition will feature the originals of all images created to date at the time, with prints also available.
