A year in the life of a world-renowned artist
Despite Julie Doucet’ s renunciation of her comics-centric lifestyle more than five years ago, "365 Days" is imbued with the iconic talent and studied aesthetic of her seminal comic book series "Dirty Plotte," which catapulted her into being one of the world’ s greatest cartoonists. This visual journal, starting in late 2002, is an idiosyncratic collision of her various creative interests, wherein personal narrative, collage, and drawing begin to tell the story of her pursuits into printmaking and beyond, chronicling her maturation as a mid-career artist and her fluid extension into a broader arts community.
Now exhibiting internationally, Doucet blurs the boundaries between high art, illustration, craft, and comics: where panel borders once divided pages, collage creeps in; events and doodles merge; recollection and narrative blend with the abstract. The surreal neurosis of her comics has subsided to reveal a more relaxed creativity that is unrestricted by form or definition and is as engaging as ever.
