Meghan Boody

We are Gods in the Chrysalis

The publication takes the reader on a fantastical journey through the strange and beautiful worlds of artist Meghan Boody. Her pictures, dioramas and photo-vitrines tell stories of young women entangled in difficult adventures. Female versions of the male heroic quest, these image-based novellas unfold in a unique brew of fairy tale, myth and personal memory. Considered a pioneer of digital imaging, Boody composites hundreds of Photoshop layers to make her heroic tableaux. Equal parts Dr Freud and Dr Frankenstein, the resulting magical environments transport the viewer into another time and place.
