Grace Lang’s Babes in Deathland

You may have missed the opening, but there is still much arting to be had at the Cotton Candy Machine in Williamsburg. This month, CCM’s own Grace Lang shows off her artistry, with Babes in Deathland, a series of brightly demonic paintings and sculptures.

In Babes in Deathland, Grace explores both familiar and undiscovered territory through new paintings and sculptures​. The demons that have appeared throughout her work for the past couple of years have now met their match in the babes that wade through rivers of goo in order to combat them.​ Continually preoccupied with the concept of personal “demons,” her work reflects the internal struggles that plague us all, creating visual manifestations of those dark little thoughts that are at once frightening and sort of funny. Much of Grace’s work stems from the belief that these personal demons are not necessarily enemies but, rather, aspects of ourselves that can be utilized for good. Often depicted in moments of triumph, her babes display their battle wounds proudly, allowing scars to stay fresh and dripping, even assimilating slain monsters into their armor. The babes serve as a reminder that with each painful experience, our armor grows and we become the warriors of our own worlds.​
