43/30 Parallel Press is the art/design collective of Lynne Heller, Kate Jarboe, and M. Wright, based in Toronto, Canada and Austin, Texas. We investigate archives, social histories and the technological sublime, in order to reconstruct marginalized and alternative narratives through artist’s books, comic books, posters, postcards, and other printed ephemera.



On the one hand, there are our desires and yearnings; on the other, reality. And in between there is a wide gap filled with our very human day-to-day struggles while we live, work and play. Dreams and reality bumping up against each other manifest in odd juxtapositions, quirky coincidence, both endearing and frightening fumbles. Our current work reflects our interest in exploring our adaptation as we wander around—mostly lost—improvising in this rocky terrain. We contemplate our humanity and find beauty amongst the overfamiliar artifacts of our popular culture.
