Vanessa Conte: Naked Eyes

Vanessa Conte will show work by artists whose glorious and grotesque visions of the body have inspired her visual storytelling practice. Artists who explore sexuality through autobiographical narrative and horror will be featured to contextualize the themes of her most recent comics.

Vanessa Conte is a graphic artist and painter from Yonkers, NY, who has been exhibiting her work in galleries and museums internationally since 2004. Her first publication was a book of humorous and extreme erotic short stories in 2016, and she soon after fell in love with the form and genres of comics. Conte still exhibits paintings but is most passionate about making drawings for the intimate book format. Her zines have been published by Random Man Editions, NY, innen, Zürich, and Halle für Kunst, Luneberg.
