Gallery Nucleus will be hosting a Junko Mizuno show launching August 18th (from 7pm-11pm) showcasing her original illustrations and pages from her comic book, "Hansel and Gretel" - of which the cover for is shown above-left, while above-right is a re-drawing of 'Gretel Sakazaki of Hibari town'. HANSEL & GRETEL exhibits thru September 9th, 2012.
'Junko Mizuno shares with us another of her unique revisions of a classic fairy tale: this time with the Grimm Brother's Hansel and Gretel. Junko's take on the story sends us on a vaguely familiar journey, sprinkled with morbid humor and an almost completely new cast of bold, twisted characters. The book's original ink illustrations will be on display and available to collectors for the first time.' [via www.gallerynucleus.com]
