IN THE SWEET BYE & BYE
One of my fav artists is Margaret Kilgallen. Her work is is warm and ironic, infused with hand painted type and endearing characters. Of course all of her work on a flat plane is amazing. Details compound upon details, often with a slightly sinister undertone.
What really got me, tough, was her type installations. Words become larger than life, still friendly enough to sleep under.
