Loopy Loonies

Several drawings from my Loopy Loonies series will be shown in an exhibition opening October 23, 2020 in Berlin at the Haus der Statistik titled “The New Normal?”:

The series Loopy Loonies explores the violence imbedded in the comic and cartoon imagery endemic to American visual culture. In the context of the present-day political disaster in the US, the formal language—which includes splats, speech bubbles, and animated letters of the alphabet—inquires into the ways in which a culture weaned on entertainment, superheroes, and happy ends loses its ability to distinguish between fact and fiction.
