In the intersection of comics, biotechnology, fairly tales and science fiction lies the work of Bea Emsbach. Through the characteristic precision of her blood-red ink drawings, Emsbach creates scenarios--both real and unreal--that serve to perturb and transfix the viewing eye. She designs imaginary scenarios of the future, traversing various pictorial worlds as a matter of course. Strange beings evolve as a result--peculiar mutants, hybrid humanoid creatures, entangled in bizarre situations and bound together with veins, tubes and cords. This publication provides a comprehensive overview of Emsbach's pen drawings from 1995 onwards (these comprise the body of her work), as well as selected lesser-known installation and object work.
