Artist talk with Curtis Gannon: "Remnants of Yesterday/Fragments of Tomorrow"

Artist Curtis M. Gannon will talk about the world of American action comic books and their influence as a universal form of visual communication. Gannon will elaborate on this point and his thought process in constructing his pieces, while touching on the significance of what these ideas mean for the viewer.

While the show primarily consists of subject-less grids and weavings, Gannon has also included a breathtaking installation based on the Copernican model of Heliocentrism. Consisting of suspended, loosely scattered miniature bottles, the installation is a manifestation of what the artist coins a "controlled randomness" and represents the fantastical idea of DC and Marvel universes, the fictional realms of two rival comic book companies.
