In recent years, a number of artists have transmuted the lexicon of comic strips and films, cartoons and animation into a new, representational mode of 'comic abstraction'. From Julie Mehretu's intricately layered paintings to Arturo Herrera's psychological collages, the world of comic abstraction reflects the intensely personal relationship that many contemporary artists maintain with the political makeup of the world. Bridging the rift between abstract form and social consciousness in ways that are both critical and playful, this exhibition presents the first investigation into the experimental outgrowths of comic abstraction.
