McCloud inspires fine art

Washingtonpost.com reports on the works of painter Deena Feigelson Margolis, whose work is on display at the McLean Project for the Arts in Washington.  Called “Four months”, it’s the result of her attempt to make a painting a day for four months, after reading Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics.  Margolis was especially intrigued by McCloud’s discussion of “the relationship of the frame to the spaces between the frames”.

Similarly, since it turned out to be impossible to actually create a pictue every day, there are sporadic gaps in the finished series, representing Margolis most eventful and hectic days.  Paradoxically, they are the elements in the chain that tie the narrative together, and are in a way her best paintings.
