Sharon Moody: Comic Book Paintings

Artist Sharon Moody recreates comic books as hyper realistic paintings painstakingly rendered to capture not only the graphic illustration of the original comic, but also the excitement that comes from flipping through the pages. "My goal as a painter is to create space, whether the table top space in a still life work or the more shallow space of a trompe l'oeil composition" she says, "Illusionism, especially the heightened mimesis found in trompe l'oeil, invites the viewer to enter the space of the piece and then persuades them to linger and explore the meaning of the work."
