Sue Webster, 'I Was A Teenage Banshee', Publication
I Was A Teenage Banshee is a Künstlerroman by Sue Webster, combining personal memoir with a visual narrative of her evolution as an artist, exploring the ongoing influence of youth, music, popular culture and particularly Siouxsie and the Banshees on her life and work.
More than 300 illustrations combine ephemera with artwork and reveal the connection between influence and art: objects documenting her fanaticism of the Banshees, from record covers and photographs to ticket stubs and lyrics; paraphernalia from books, artists, and cultural figures that relate to the Banshees and that world of 1970s and early 1980s post-punk; personal effects from diary pages to unseen photographs; and selected artworks.
