Everything That Creeps – Elizabeth McGrath
This is the first collected work of the LA underground art world’s favorite wunderkind, Elizabeth McGrath. Full-color photos and detail shots reveal the exquisitely complex details of her sweetly twisted creatures, giving a glimpse of what the Island of Misfit Toys might have become had it been saved by Satan rather than Santa. An illustrated look at a dark little girl’s haunted wonderland.
Los Angeles-born artist Elizabeth McGrath has always had an eye for the strange beauty in the grotesqueries of life; this appreciation is nowhere more evident than in her work. Inspired by the relationship between the natural world and the detritus of consumer culture, she brings forth a new cavalcade of creatures from the darker corners of the streets, the city, the imagination.
