Plum Ruby Review is pleased to be featuring A.R. Menne as the featured artist for Issue 3. Menne is a 24 year-old artist living in Seattle "with a wee circus of rodents and a musician." Her graphite drawings seem to echo this description; they are whimsical, disturbing and yet they have a sweet lyrical quality to them. Each drawing seems to manifest a bit of that same, nearly disturbing, fantastical quality--H.R. Giger meets Cirque du Soleil. Her characters are beautiful, even when terrible, even when empty-eyed, missing-limbed or creature-entwined. We are delighted to have her work gracing our pages this issue. Please visit her Web site, www.zenidou.com to see more of her portfolio and to purchase her artwork online.
