Cornelius Quabeck "C Monster"
This event has ended.
No Pun intended!
In recent years I’ve been working on a group of paintings that focus on fictional characters. As an artist I’ve always dealt with public imagery from newspapers to record covers to books and cartoons. A while ago though I decided to try and imagine a figure in painting like fictional writers do in books instead of reproducing and interpreting given imagery.
For my forthcoming solo show at Taro Nasu Gallery I selected and regrouped new works from my studio of the last two years. Together these works build a fantastic world where each depicted character might be a hero or villain depending on the viewer’s reading. Being a picture show it does not offer the structure of narration that we experience when reading a book turning page after page.
Hopefully though this show will manage to create a book momento equivalent to what lovers of literature would call a "great novel."
