Michael Callas | THE UNIVERSE IS IN THE INDIVIDUAL, Detour Gallery, Saturday, 18. May 2019

Detour Gallery is proud to share a breathtaking collection of new works by Michael Callas, in the exhibition, The Universe Is In The Individual, May 18 to June 29. In The Universe is in the Individual, artist Michael Callas utilizes imagery first conceived in the 1960s DC Comic series, Star Spangled War Stories later appropriated by the famed pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. With Lichtenstein we see these images transformed from their comic book beginnings into lithographs and paintings showcasing the trademark Ben-Day dot technique. In The Universe is in the Individual, we see these images take on new life as fully realized large-scale paintings of a seamless cinematic quality. The continued interpretations of the comic aesthetic speak to the iconic nature of the imagery and its ability to adopt new meaning over time.
