A mass for you to untangle: Peony Gent on her comics and installation art
Between her ambiguous comics, gorgeous illustrations, installation art, and quilt making(!), Peony Gent is a renaissance multi-hyphenate. In this episode, she sits down with host Allan Haverholm to explain how they’re all connected, how she creates gaps for her readers’ interpretations to live in, and to declare her great love for Dungeons and Dragons.
