VAC Art Opening Reception: Madonna Comix

The images in Madonna Comix are based on poems in which the Madonna represents multiple experiences of being a woman. Curator and art historian, Prudence Roberts, writes, "When Dianne showed me her early versions of Madonna Comix last year, I was completely stunned by their beauty and intensity. I had never seen anything quite like them before. These images combine snippets of Little Lulu comics, lines from Celia Bland’s poems, and Dianne’s own negatives, freeform drawing and saturated washes of color. The prints are dark and irreverent, funny and sacred, and as full of mystery and miracle as the life of Mary, the mother of Jesus."
