Anya Davidson: CHARACTER FLAWS
6:00pm – 10:00pm Tomato House
301 Saratoga Avenue,
Brooklyn, New York 11233
Tomato House is thrilled to present a solo show of drawings by the acclaimed cartoonist, printmaker, and musician Anya Davidson.
Davidson has produced an avalanche, a torrent, a dizzying froth of comic work over the course of the last decade, often self-published in labor-intensive, fully silkscreened editions. Her storylines frequently collapse elements of the fantastic, the grotesque, and the mythological onto scenes of everyday life, exposing the ancient forces at work under our veneer of modern civilization. Her story “Barbarian Bitch” appeared in Kramers Ergot 8 and the graphic novel “School Spirits” was published in 2013 by PictureBox. “Band For Life”, her Ignatz-nominated online comic about the trials and tribulations of a group of young musicians, continues to appear weekly on vice.com.
“Character flaws is an attempt to capture some of the inhabitants of my brain, my neighborhood, my planet and my galaxy. They are usually in motion but they stood still for these portraits. As a cartoonist I have a deep and abiding obsession with the human figure and the myriad ways it can be altered, twisted and re-interpreted. I also have a compulsion to make up stories. Sometimes my character designs generate stories and sometimes it’s vice versa. Each one of these creatures is the potential protagonist of a story I haven’t thought up yet.” -A.D.
CHARACTER FLAWS opens November 7, with a reception from 6 to 10 PM and continues through December 6.

We’ll be in the back room but a group of sad-faced comic nerds shouldn’t be too hard to spot.
