Rorschach Red Marilyn? Watchmen-Inspired Pop Art at Meltdown
"Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes, Chapters 11 & 12" by Mack Hill
According to curator Marz Richards, part of the inspiration for the Watchmen-inspired exhibit Physical Nostalgia - "a punk rock celebration of one of the most important creative works to appear at the end of the 20th century," currently on display at Meltdown Comics' gallery space - was to have a selection of artists interpret and honor their own visions of the source material in advance of Zack Snyder's film version taking its own berth in the pop lexicon. Which isn't to say that viewing the art in light of last weekend's movie release is a bad thing; indeed, at Saturday night's exhibit opening shindig, snippets of debate about likes and dislikes (some from folks who had just come straight from the cinema) were in earshot everywhere, all spurred forth by the evocative pieces on display.
