Sophie Jodoin

From The Ward (2008-2009 War Series) © Sophie Jodoin.

I came across a link to the website of Canadian artist Sophie Jodoin while I was passing though 3 Quarks Daily. (Thanks!) She describes the 89 drawings that make up The Ward like this: "Small meditative drawings on the silent wounded voices of war. Inspired by Goya's capriccios." Of the larger War Series she says: "Inspired in part by contemporary war imagery, graffiti, and comic-style silhouettes this latest series of tiny collages and drawings call into question the numbness with which viewers are habituated to observing the carnage of war and domestic violence."
