Anna Gaskell

Girls’ heads bowed in a secretive huddle, girls’ hands wrapped ’round another girl’s arm, girls’ bare legs and feet dangling in a chorus, girls’ lab-coated figures standing in a clinical circle. Girls staring into another girl’s mouth, girls being eaten by one another, girls throttling another girl’s two-foot long neck. Girls’ stockings, girls’ hair, girls’ spindly hands and skinny legs. In this, her first artist’s book, are Anna Gaskell’s girls, in mysterious color photographs and scratchy, toothy drawings.

pp. 48; COL and BW; paperback. Publisher: Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, 2002.
