Theme and Variation
By Hal Higdon
NIPSCO Art Education Studios
September 5 – October 1, 2014
Just as Brahms channeled Handel and Rachmaninoff channeled Paganini, Hal Higdon uses images from comic art for inspiration. In this Theme and Variation exhibit of his art, Higdon displays original comic art from his collection beside newly created paintings of runners. Daredevil runs a marathon. Superman sprints. Archie and Veronica go jogging. A unique approach to art that is both Pop and Popular.
Comics...Comix will feature both traditional and underground comic artwork that highlight the evolution and perception of contemporary comic art. The relationship between pictures and words when done right convey special experiences.
