Manga Blocks: Installation views

My “Manga Block” drawing installations incorporate blocks of wood whose many sides function loosely as comic frames. Modular in form, they can be arranged and reconfigured in endless combinations. Each new composition yields a unique narrative. The (literally) multifaceted nature of the blocks and the interplay between the individual elements makes for a different visual experience at every angle and vantage point. Thematic motifs include cultural hybridity and confusion, spatial and temporal dis/continuity, intimacy and alienation, language and translation, popular formal tropes in comics, and a strong affinity for the absurd.
