  • Little Lessons In Safety


Her 'scratchy intelligent line drawings' (Broken Pencil) and lean text play with the format of children's readers, comics, celebrity fashion magazines, and cut and paste murder mysteries. Smart, strange, and funny, Holton's work recalls artist Raymond Pettibon, filmmaker Miranda July and southern gothic writer Carson McCullers - all at once. There is a boy with a bird for hair, feral children who grow up to be cowboys, treeplanters who never come back, and fashionista Karl Lagerfeld perfoming a bris. Her stories, 'exploring a richer, weirder understanding of language and sentiment' (Brian Joseph Davis), reveal themselves in layers - eerily straightforward and yet never quite what they seem.
