March 30, 2015: Mosaic Superheroes in New York ExhibitionPrint

Mosaic Superman Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and a host of other pop culture characters are the focus of a mosaic art exhibition on display now in New York's Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery.

    Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery presents Deconstructive/Constructive, a body of iconic mosaic works by Jason Dussault, a Vancouver and New York based artist whose practice focuses on combining traditional forms of mosaic with pop-culture characters from his childhood and the present. The works presented recall the power of childhood memories through iconic characters that resonate with human nature's desire to retain an inner youth. Playful in nature yet anchored to the stringent values of adulthood, Dussault seeks to remind the viewer of a fragility that ultimately leads to self- awareness. This is the artist's debut solo exhibition in New York. Dussault explains, "Growing up in a small rural Canadian town in the late seventies and early eighties with young parents struggling to find their way, I spent much of my time alone, and the only access to art I had was comic books. I would spend hours trying to redraw these characters. Deconstructive/Constructive is my tribute to comic book art, my first love and inspiration."

    While his appropriated versions of superheroes and other characters known in the mass media hearken back to Pop art of the 1950s and 1960s, they align contemporarily with artists like KAWS, Mitch McGee, Justin Gilzene, Ron English and Invader.

    The focal piece of the exhibition is large-scale, homage to the late George Delmerico, legendary Village Voice Art Director titled Deconstructive/Constructive. Dussault's piece is a recreation of Delmerico's iconic superhero amalgamation, A Marvel - Ous Evening with Stan Lee, 1972. The pastiche was originally created as a poster for a lecture given by Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee at Carnegie Hall. Dussault has recreated the famous image in a four-panel composite work using his distinctive mosaic style.

    Throughout the exhibition Dussault features characters such as Lego Batman and Joker, Superman, Thor, Hulk, and Wonder Woman. By using materials specific to the subject matter, each piece harbors a unique sentiment deeper than the nostalgic surface image. With the use of traditional mosaic media like tile and grout, Dussault also utilizes paint, resin, wood, vinyl, found ceramics, and vintage porcelain to create well-known commercial images of comics and cartoons.

Deconstructive/Constructive is on view now until April 8 at Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery, 527 West 23rd Street, New York. For more information about the artist visit www.jasondussault.com or www.hoerle-guggenheim.com


March 30, 2015: "Superman: The Movie" Plus "San Andreas" Equals "Supermandreas"Print

Superman On May 29 the new disaster movie titled "San Andreas", starring Dwayne Johnson, will be released to theatres. Illustrator and video editor Nick Acosta, who isn't a fan of "The Rock", has edited together his own version of the trailer for the film, inserting Christopher Reeve as Superman in his place.

    Some of the film's big disaster set pieces (the destruction of the Hoover Dam and Golden Gate bridge) looked very familiar to me. They are almost shot for shot the same as from one of my favorite movies growing up - the 1978 film "Superman." So I decided to re-edit the "San Andreas" trailer to take out The Rock and his wooden acting and put in a 27-year-old Christopher Reeve as Superman. I even rotoscoped him flying from the 1978 film into "San Andreas."

If you haven't seen it, here's the actual trailer for "San Andreas" which Nick used as inspiration.


March 30, 2015: Filming Wraps on "Supergirl" TV PilotPrint

Supergirl Director Glen Winter has confirmed that filming on the Pilot episode of the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series has wrapped.

Late last week Winter also tweeted his satisfaction with the ways things were going on the Pilot saying, "OK. After today i'm pretty damn sure i believe a girl can fly."

Work on the Pilot episode now goes into Post Production, with special effects and editing, ahead of its debut on CBS some time in September.

CBS will likely confirm the date and possibly show some footage from the Pilot episode of "Supergirl" when they present their Fall programming at the "Upfronts" on Monday, May 13.

March 29, 2015: Rare Find - Chinese Superman Matchbox CoverPrint

Chinese Superman Matchbox Cover The image shown here is an enlarged photo of the Hong Kong-produced WAH TUNG MATCH COMPANY Chinese SUPERMAN matchbox cover.

The date on these two covers is unknown but is speculated to be from around 1966. The true size of this item is 1-7/16" wide by 1-7/8" high. John Sindall, founder of the Q Collection Comic Book Preservation Project purchased the cover, which had been removed from the matchbox when he found it. This unique Superman collectible will be laminated and used in the SUPERMAN BINDER BONUS SECTION of the Q Collection Comic Book Preservation Project.

Here's a bit more on this Asian oddity:

    This is a match box from Wah Tung Match Co. featuring an interesting localized image of SUPERMAN as filtered through Chinese style art. I haven't been able to find out a whole lot about the company, beyond that they are named after a part of Hong Kong (“Tung Wah”). The date they released this Sueprman pack is unknown, too. The only real info I have about the company is that they also released a series of match packs featuring great images from Chinese mythology. And here's a Dutch site that has dozens of different Wah Tung Co. match box images.

Many thanks to CollectingSuperman.com for this information.

Note: For those interested, there was also a Batman matchbox cover produced.

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    This whole arc was a breath of fresh air. Superman faced a new kind of enemy. Everything was so much more personal. And thus, the stakes were so much higher for him. He was forced to make very difficult choices. I like that he is humble enough to turn to Batman for help. Superman is all heart, but he is also smart enough to know when he needs help.

    As the story progresses, I felt Superman's frustration, anger, anguish and in the end, sadness.
