“A Brief History of Complex And Delicate Situations”.  Yes, indeed. Beautiful, clever, powerful… all of it. This is a series by American artist {and current MFA student} Katie Lochhead, and these are her words:

This body of work is made with graphite underlinings and ink on paper, and utilizes natural history illustration and botanical plate references combined with first person accounts of trauma. While some of the narratives are mine, others are attained from friends or research, but all are “true” in the sense that they originate from a living person’s viewpoint. I feel that I give myself and the other narrators more room to breath by maintaining some sense of anonymity. 

Beautiful. Clever. Powerful.

    What is this artist on? Oh right.

    Well keep taking the tablets, but double the dosage, your head will clear and the kippers will stop attacking.
