Dame Darcy's "Gasoline"


Artist/Writer Dame Darcy, creator of graphic novels and paintings, has tackled subjects a diverse and strange as the songs of Tori Amos, collections of fairy tales, and Jane Eyre. With her new graphic novel "Gasoline," she moves away from re-inventing the past and delves into a bizarre, frightening, and goth-romantic future. Read for yourself:

"In a post-apocalyptic world, the search for precious gasoline pits a family of orphaned witches against conniving nihilists who lurk in the decaying urban sprawl…”

Starting Wednesday, November 19th, from 7 to 9 PM, Sloan Fine Art in Manhattan will be presenting original artwork from "Gasoline". That night's reception is free and open to the public, and Dame Darcy will be present signing books.

With the manuscript’s emotional story and Dame Darcy’s intricate,
romantic style, the original works from “Gasoline” stand alone as
compelling individual pieces. Installed in succession in the gallery,
they create a powerful visual narrative of “danger, heartbreak and
the perseverance of magic and love.

The show runs through December 20th, which makes "Gasoline" an excellent and timely Christmas gift for your artistically-inclined friends and family. But if you can't get to New York, just drop Sloan Fine Art a line. We can't be sure, but we bet they'll be happy to send you a copy. If there are any left...
