Vyd Comix Art

Various Series

Comix Art are composed of many, many, many scissored clips interwoven to spin new hero myths. referencing Joseph Campbell - Hero With A Thousand Faces.

For most of my life I shifted piles (3,000) of 60's, 70's & 80's Marvel comic books from attic to basement to closet before finally getting to display shelve and re-read. What A Disappointment! After a month of pouting I realized they lacked density; or to put it in context - it was like watching TV wrestling after having experienced Broadway theatre. I had made the mistake of growing up ... so make do. Turns out the most valuable comics are the ones not in hermetic bags, but those veraciously read, spindled and torn.

Each piece of art is composed of clipped images from separate comic books. As a general rule: only 1 image or sound bubble per issue is used per art (except Family Portrait bodies). Using scissors: some are kept rectangular, others are outline traced; some are used as image while others are just color or both, ala Bob Rauschenberg. The images butt up, overlap and are woven. The clip art meanings vary due to position, context and origin.

Stan The Man Lee homage: meticulous montage minced in the method of Matisse made from mounds of mighty Marvel masterpieces - excelsior!

Shakespeare -v- Star Trek
I argue it is more trenchant for me to quote Captain Kirk than Prince Hamlet. Consider Joseph Campbell's comparative mythology theory of "monomyth". Be it "to be or not to be" or "to go where no man has gone before"; both are the basic mortality tale. Certainly the writers of Sci-Fi are well versed in the Bards tomes. To wit: speaking of a budding Capulet from Verona or a green chick from Rigal IV; the tragic story is star-crossed lovers. Metaphors must be relative vernacular for successful communication.
Image As Palette
Pablo Picasso's 1912 Still Life w/ Chair-Caning namesake is manufactured cloth- Western Art History's formal introduction to appropriated materials. Heretofore artists were restricted to beg, borrow or stealing only compositional elements, themes, hand poses or lovers. The Industrial Age not only introduced the assembly line to production, but it added the products to the Assemblage. Bob Rauschenberg's work has clarified the phrase: "image as palette". I think we can all agree an appropriation of a 'red fire hydrant' is completely different then painting 'fire truck red' pigment. Colors are often referred to with relevant tags; [Control][X] literally cuts out a step. CEOs call this sound capitalistic strategy when it doesn't include "air quote THEIR" bottom line. As a society we utilize the latest technology to express the newest ideas. Civilization is repeatedly shock & awed by the faux-reality of Artists: natural pigment cave painting, constellations, ritual masking, oil paint perspective, manufactured editions, moving pictures, holograms . . . each was/is today.
