R. Sikoryak’s Masterpiece Comics
|March 5, 2010|
|6:00 pm||to||8:00 pm|

March 5 – March 27
Masterpiece Comics adapts a variety of classic literary works with the most iconic visual idioms of 20th-century comics. Dense with exclamation marks and lurid colors, R. Sikoryak’s parodies remind us of the sensational excesses of the canon, or, if you prefer, of the economical expressiveness of classic comics from Batman to Garfield.
“[Sikoryak] goes far beyond mere imitation to eerily inhabit the artistic sensibilities of a dozen cartoonists; the result is as funny as it is impressive. These retellings linger on the philosophical underpinnings of such tales; coupled with the allusions and baggage of these familiar cartoon characters, the crossovers take on a life of their own to become legitimate adaptations.”
