Scraps of thread, fabric and paper are stitched and pulled into fairytale creatures looking for new owners and worlds to inhabit. They hide in the woods, behind masks, some have died along the way and are buried under spoon lockets. Finch works alone and makes everything himself by hand in a studio full of books, glass jars and naughty cats.
Lala Gallardo is an artist based in Manila, Philippines. She graduated from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts with a degree in Art History in 2004 but has been practicing her art since her early youth. While she often takes on set and costume design and graphic design projects, at her core she is a painter and mixed-media artist. Her art reflects her fascination for traditional indigenous crafts, strange botanicals, medical biology, classic science fiction and vintage photographs. She has had several group and one-woman shows, and has participated in TransCultural Exchange’s worldwide Tile and Coaster Projects. Her graphic novel collaboration with writer/sister Waya Gallardo was awarded first place in the Philippine Graphic Fiction Awards.
