SHROUDS by Gary J. Shipley available in paperback

here are the first 9 pages of Gary's abstract graphic novel SHROUDS, recently published as an A4 sized paperback book through my imprint asemic editions.

SHROUDS is 62 pages of evocative images.

from Andrei Molotiu's description in the blurb:
Like the clouds with which its title rhymes, Gary J Shipley’s Shrouds allows us to see in its pages landscapes, faces and flying animals, that however never resolve into simply legible, unambiguous figures.

 Andrei likens Gary's work to Michaux, Rothko, Still & the CoBrA artists. I would add Jean Dubuffet & the Art Brut people who influenced him.

SHROUDS is one of a number of longer abstract sequential compositions which engage with the reader's imagination. My own book 100 Scenes (asemic editions & Transgressor) & Andrei's Nautilus (Fahrenheit) work in a similar way.

Gary presented some pages in progress at this blog back in 2010.
