Marlies Pekarek & Geraldine Searles
From two of the strongest and most outspoken women artists working today comes a collaborative comic book loosely based on the history of sugar. This comic book is part of a larger, ongoing project started in 2006, titled Madonnas, Queens and Other Heroes, by Australian artist-political commentator Geraldine Searles and Swiss artist Marlies Pekarek. Searles took Pekarek’s 3-D sugar sculpture entitled Sugar Queen, scanned it into a digital file, then created a fantastic story and surrounding scenery to give the Sugar Queen a new context and a new journey. The cross-cultural friendship of the collaborators began when Pekarek was studying art in Australia more than two decades ago.
