Bridget Conway
No comments

Audrey K. Hulm
No comments

  Conversations surrounding the over-arching and increasingly redactive term Feminism in panel or group style setting, can tend to be focused on picking apart semantic terminology and deciphering the ideology’s dogmatic past.

The itchy two-word phrase struck me like a mosquito bite and my attempt to navigate a way around it only increased the need to scratch. Unless the title is tautological or false,…

Phylisa Wisdom
No comments

Artist (painter, illustrator and printmaker) Mimi Leung has a fascinating ability to make the grotesque adorable. Depending on whether the work is commissioned or Leung’s own, it exists somewhere on a spectrum of cartoony to psychedelic, but is always brightly coloured.
