Child Superheroes

Child Superheroes

Starting in 2012 and continuing on into 2013, I started a concept of children as superheros for my works. I have always thought that the closest thing we have to actual superheros are children, as they have the imagination, and strive for it, and most have yet to be tainted by life, so the realm of becoming something more than themselves still exists. These pieces resulted in a show show at CruzRoom bar in NE Portland called “Superhero.” Many of the pieces are children posing as superheros, often with messages for their parents. Others are a reach into my personal past, as they are literally the ripped pages of my old comic book collection.
