This event has ended.

“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…”

This fall Merrell Publishing releases the graphic novel “Gasoline,” by Dame Darcy - fine artist, musician, performer and creator of the well-loved, long-running comic “Meat Cake.” Sloan Fine Art is pleased to host an exhibition featuring selected original works from “Gasoline” along with related paintings Darcy created while working on the book.

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.”

Dame Darcy’s previous graphic novel projects include “Frightful Fairytales” (Ten Speed Press) and “The Illustrated Jane Eyre” (Putnam Penguin USA. She is also included in the upcoming “Comic Book Tattoo,” a comic compilation illustrating the songs of Tori Amos (Image comics 2008).

Darcy’s paintings and works on paper have been exhibited at Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles, The Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, CWC in Tokyo and Gelatin in Austria.

Singed copies of “Gasoline” will be available at Sloan Fine Art throughout the exhibition and several events celebrating the release of “Gasoline,” including book signings and a cabaret show, will take place in New York City. Information about these events will be posted to sloanfineart.com and damedarcy.com
