Corey Wash: Pockets
Now, we come to Corey Wash. An emerging artist with unsurpassed eloquence, though that might not be your first reaction to her work. Its simple, for certain, but the cartoons hold more weight than what meets the eye— Corey’s genderless cartoon anti-hero holds almighty power, offering an open platform for alternative opinions, without its own overt opinion. Wash is witty, and brilliant, and one of the most articulate artists I have met. And all through art. When I asked to talk to her about her new show, in LA, Pockets, and pick her brain since our last chat— appropriately, her answers came back by pen and ink.
