Vintage comics, painted wood on canvas
73 x 73cm
A collection of vintage comic segments arranged on canvas with painted wooden strips. The work is mounted behind conservation glass within a dark brown, wooden frame.
Using a single Donald Duck comic from 1971, small sections have been cut from the pages and laid out to form a vibrant, geometric pattern. The intended story arc has been scrambled in the arrangement allowing a new absurd narrative to form. Painted black wood at the top and bottom are reminiscent of the borders surrounding comic panels.
The use of vintage comics as a source material evokes a sense of childhood nostalgia.
