One of my favorite writers, Audrey Niffenegger — author of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry — also happens to be an artist. Her work is dark and sad and otherworldly, evoking a tone similar to her novels. It’s not a tone I typically gravitate toward, but for some reason I love her prints.
Don’t they have this eery air of foreboding? The one in the top left hand corner is my favorite, partially because it’s so enigmatic. A man I worked for once owned a print of it and I could have spent hours staring at it. It’s beautiful, for sure, but what is really going on in that scene? It’s totally mesmerizing.
Heads up: Niffenegger’s new book, Raven Girl, is out May 9th!
