Art and Cake reviews The Artists' Prison
Art and Cake reviews The Artists' Prison at Ochi Projects, an exhibition of drawings made by Eve Wood for Alexandra Grant's first published work of fiction.
Jody Zellen writes: "The Artists’ Prison is a book of fiction written by Alexandra Grant and illustrated by Eve Wood that describes the imagined crimes and punishments of over forty prisoners housed in a Kafka-esque environment as told to a nameless Commander by a similarly nameless Warden. In the heavily redacted text, Grant outlines the plights of individuals described as: the Water Artist, the Blind Draftsman, the Narcissist, The Pinhole Camera Artist, etc. Wood’s illustrations open each dialogue providing visual interpretations of the prisoner’s conundrums."
