Prologue / Barrier
Sarah Pincock is a queer artist working in Nampa, Idaho. Their work consists of fabulist interpretations of medieval iconography and archetypes to provoke unexpectedly relevant tales of queerness & quest; read: swords & goblins. Prologue / Barrier is first in a part of a comic collection of short stories centered around the folklore surrounding the Hawthorne tree—its innate dichotomy of mischief and misfortune vs. springing-forth and growth; that it is both a symbol of fertility and that a blooming branch brought inside will cause death to mothers; and its occupation as a hedgerow, both as a welcome barrier to ward off ne’erdowellers and the thin line drawn between us and the folktale.
