The Tara McPherson ‘Somewhere Under the Rainbow’ collection is whimsically dark, incorporating modern printing techniques with retro-inspired illustration. Each subject is sickly sweet with a razor-sharp edge, exuding blatant innocence and an eerie sense of wisdom. McPherson includes pretty pouts with rainbow-hued hair and Kiss-inspired face paint. With honey-dripping colors and details such as skulls, balloons and girl scout sashes, this collection of serigraphs is for any good girl gone evil.
