Interviews With The Fantastic
InterGalactic Interview With "Marlowe"
    by Randall Hayes

I was at Carolina Beach, scarfing down local strip-mall doughnuts from Wake-N-Bake, when I stumbled across an article in their alt-weekly about "Marlowe," a collage artist inspired by the pulps who had an exhibition coming up in downtown Wilmington. I really liked that article's description of the family connection, because most of what I know about the pulps I learned from my older brother, who was a fan and a collector. The Shadow and Doc Savage were his favorites. Right now I'm reading Philip Jose Farmer's Wold-Newton "biography," Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life, so the article kind of rang a bell for me personally, on top of my ongoing obsession with models of cultural evolution.

My wife and I were both a bit sunburned, so we abandoned the beach and went downtown. I stopped by the gallery, New Elements. Even though the show wasn't due to open until several days after our return to Greensboro, the owner, Miriam Oehrlein, graciously showed me all the Marlowe canvases she had stored in her basement. They're big, poster-sized, and the digital thumbnails on her webpage really don't do them justice. The patterned and textured papers that make up the backgrounds could be just as interesting as the foreground images.

I pestered Ms. Oehrlein to send the artist my contact info, and here we are, conversing online. Enjoy.
