We interviewed her at the time, and now we have a little video to show you of the opening and the vibe.

The Work of Elisa Malo

Illustration // Tuesday, October 06, 2015
In the depths of a person’s stare, if you look very closely, it’s said you’ll manage to see into their soul. For Elisa Malo, Mexico City based illustrator, the souls she finds are the kind you’d wish you’d never dwelled into.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 06, 2015
Penelope Gazin has taken sensuality into a place cornered by guts, fluids and sex, the best kind of all of these.

There is something incredibly enchanting and creepy about her characters; attractive and repulsive and at times with elegant feminist satire.

Here is additional proof that hallucinogenic drugs can be highly beneficial to ones creativity and artistic practice.  It would be safe to say Baer has been to the deep end and back many times before.
