Creature Feature Review: Raven Creature's 'Drawing from the Inside' at Byrdie's
Review: Raven Creature's 'Drawing from the Inside' at Byrdie's Gallery
by Cheryl Castjohn
Creature's subjects include Aleister Crowley, Franz Kafka, H.P. Lovecraft, Anaïs Nin, Tennessee Williams, Edgar Allen Poe, Colette, Philip K. Dick, and a lovely likeness of JK Rowling as well. These portraits are not abstract in any way, except that they are floating heads. They appear as taut, succinct little honorary busts hovering on her page, ghosts she has conjured from portraits and paintings of her heroes.
