Marci Washington's artwork subverts Victorian gothic imagery into a contempory visual language. Washes a gouache and watercolor make up grotesque faces and distorted bodily forms that stare off the page. Dismembered bloody hands and still heads float seemingly frozen in space, while livid male and female figures in gowns and uniforms collapse within rooms of floral wallpaper and chandeliers. Marci Washington's imagery creates a world of hidden stories, handwritten letters, ghosts, poisoned drinks, haunted namors, barren winters, and betrayal - and this dark world draws you in completely. For Forever I'll Be Here is an oversize monograph of recent work by this Oakland, California based artist - including a collection of paintings exhibited at Leeds College of Art in 2011.
