Featured Exhibit: "Tangiable Intangiables" by Cameron Mankin
Cameron Mankin is interested in depicting intangible things. His prints (a mix of woodcut, inkjet, and etching) hope to depict phenomena that really only appear to or are constructed by the human mind – things like authenticity or originality. The prints in this exhibition are drawn from two quixotic efforts to distill such ideas into physical objects.
14 Fallen from Daredevil #11 attempts to isolate empathy. Comic books are full of marginalized figures that are thrown around like ragdolls by the larger-than-life heroes and villains that occupy their pages. These figures provide a unique opportunity to practice empathy, forming a one-on-one connection through repeated contact. In this case, that contact happens to take the form of repeated redrawing and etching.
