Megan Cedro Goes Picasso by Way of Ghost World

Artist Megan Cedro's childhood doodling has developed into a rather attractive, if a tad malnourished, alter ego. Her drawings of stretched, stringy, solemn young ladies remind us of that scene in Ghost World where Enid, while in art class, scowls at the teacher's pet who is presenting a tampon in a teacup while Enid is busy creating a whole comic world. Cedro seems to have spent her art education taking inspiration from Pablo Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon to fashion the kind of women Dan Clowes would like to listen to records with. Her mademoiselles are on view at About Glamour Gallery through January 25.
