The West Seattle High School student who would become the movie star Frances Farmer wrote an essay in which she declared God dead. It was just one of the moments in which she opened her mouth, said what she thought, and ended up ostracized for it. Farmer, who eventually was hospitalized for mental illness and alcoholism and died young, is the subject of Amanda Manitach’s new large pencil drawings. Her words appear in the drawings against a backdrop based on an 1885 French wallpaper sample that swirls beautifully and a little frightfully, the way that Manitach’s older drawings of syphilitic labia did. (Yes.) What do Farmer’s words sound like in the voice of Manitach’s hands? JEN GRAVES
