OutFront Q&A: Artist/Writer Daisy Rockwell on new book “Hats with Doctors”

Daisy Rockwell is an American painter based in northern New England.

A year ago she spoke with OutFront in support of her book “The Little Book of Terror,” a collection of paintings of real-life terror suspects in innocent poses.

The portraits – all done by Rockwell – were based on actual photographs of her subjects.

Since that interview she has continued painting – two paintings of Aurora movie theater shooter James Holmes, a collection based on publicly available mug shots of women, and a Bollywood series.

But she’s also  known for her writing and her new book “Hats with Doctors,” a selection of short stories by Hindi writer Upendranath Ashk and translated by Rockwell, is now available.

OutFront recently had the opportunity to ask Rockwell about the reaction to her previous interview, her latest projects and her thoughts on sexual assaults in India. FULL POST
