Amanda Vahamaki and Michelangelo Setola

Concurrent with the Car Engine Drawing Show this Summer at Lula is a show of pencil drawings by Amanda Vähämäki and Michelangelo Setola (also in the Car Engine Show) both of whom are part of the Italian comics collective Canicola. The drawings are partially collaborative, many have appeared in their artists book Souvlaki Circus, published in the U.S. by the late, lamented Buenaventura Press. The drawings are little gems of narrative image making. They are mysterious, understated and dreamlike. They are being seen in the U.S for the first time (Lula's show follows on the heels of a show at Home Gallery in Hyde Park), and it may be a while before these artists work will be seen here again. Reception with wine and food August 24th, 6-9.
