New work chronicling the prolific and life changing time period of 2007-2011, when Garcia fled LA and moved to a cabin in the Northern California woods. The natural world inspires this work: her themes are disenchantment with modernity and the problems of becoming too removed from the natural world. Garcia's layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs' cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons, acting as critical commentary on the failures of capitalist utopias.
