Five Feminist Fables, Award-Winning Artist Maureen Burdock

German-born artist Maureen Burdock, whose work has consistently addressed social issues, has gained the attention of The Lamp Project.  Burdock is also a graphic novelist, and The Lamp Project has posted a preview of her upcoming The F Word Project: Five Feminist Fables, a graphic anthology to be published by McFarland in Fall 2014.

When asked why she turned to this particular medium, Burdock replied that she wanted to “make work that is accessible to a broad public and can be disseminated in venues including-but also beyond-galleries and museums.”  The Lamp Project says Burdock’s work is a “compelling alternative” to the visual tropes that come to mind when one thinks of comics.  Read the entire article here:
