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.
When it comes to comics, as long as something can be drawn, it can be real; making it the perfect medium to bring the brilliance and ingenuity of its creators to life.
In Lords of Infinity, three of the most talented up-and-coming artists in the British comics scene are brought together to populate the walls of the Orbital gallery with worlds of their own.
Whether it’s with a bit of sci-fi, fantasy or simply the extra-ordinary, Cristian Ortiz, Andy Poyiadgi and James Harvey all bring a little something extra to the world we know. In this exhibition we invite you to step into the fabric of the realities they have created.
The exhibition runs from August 9 to September 7, and we will be hosting an opening night on Friday, August 8th, where all three artists will be in attendance.
