The Strip Show examines the influence of comic strips on the work of Australian artists Stephen Bird, Sharon Goodwin, Chayni Henry, Shin Koyama, Jonathan McBurnie, Brian Robinson and Charles Street.

The accessibility and mass consumption of comic strips ensures an ongoing interplay of mythology within contemporary culture.

These artists utilise the subversive nature of the comic medium to unveil universal truths of humanity where tragedy, humour, violence and erotica comfortably sit alongside each other.

The ‘dangerous’ imagery that results, transforms the lineage of comics’ sequential storytelling into re-imagined cultural archetypes.

This sees the continuation, yet blurring of heroic tricksters, where cunning and physique interplay with a subversive witticism.
