I have wanted to do a little post on Magda Stanova for a while now. Her work kills me. In like a “it’s good to be dead” way. Like we are watching True Blood and not only can vampires live forever, but they also dress cute. Magda’s work is simple, elegant yet profoundly provocative. Her script alone is worth checking out (if you are into that sort of thing, like I am). I feel a lot of the work I find myself drawn to these days is within a certain vein within the “unnamed” art kinda like the stuff Dave Edgers/McSweeney’s works with. I feel Magda would have been a worthy edition to the book “More Things like this.” Compared to other artists published through McSweenys, Magda’s work questions certainty in a way that is accessible, and undeniable. My grandma, I should think, without knowing any art information beyond that of Monet painting water lilies would take to Magda’s drawings as much as I would, having a few years of art education on him.
