Drawings & Prints

No body of work better illustrates Mary Beth Edelson’s embrace of the Trickster and masquerade than her hybridized, layered drawings made between 1970 and the present which incorporate fragmented images of the ancient Greek trickster Baubo, the Irish trickster Sheela-na-gig and the modern-day tricksters including the Hollywood femme fatale. This disparate cast of characters—while geographically, historically and culturally dissimilar—converge in Edelson’s work as discursive sites for the critical examination of feminist art practice and women’s agency in religion, popular culture and politics today--Alissa Rame Friedman
