The current work pairs Hollywood film icons with comic book characters and environments designed to generate conversations about American values and identity. The action of the comic gives us a piece of the narrative: violence, restraint or perhaps joy. The personas of the movies stars act as blank canvases for us to project our personal experience and biases. There is a connection and a disconnect between these entities beyond technique. They exist within a single frame and are aware of each other’s existence yet there is an element of obliviousness. Something is happening and they can’t seem to take it in.
