Caroline Sury’s Papillons Poubelles

Posted in Uncategorized by brynzo on July 1, 2010

I was also lucky enough to get a present from Berlin.  My good friend Mads (check her blog) picked me up an amazing screen printed comic called Papillions Poubelles (translated ‘Butterflies Dustbins’) by french artist Caroline Sury.  Caroline is one half French publishing house Le Dernier Cri, which I wrote about last month.

Front cover of Papilons Poubelles

This book is lovingly assembled.  Every page is screen printed and the cover folds out to four A4 pages and has images on both sides!  The comic is in French, and I haven’t spent enough time translating it to know exactly what the story is about.  However, the images inside show the cost of our modern society on nature and humanity gone awry (although I could be way off). The art through out is dark in subject matter, disturbing at times,  but bright, almost glowing with colour.  It’s an interesting contrast.  The artists at Le Dernier Cri are really pushing the limits of hand made press.
