Chris Ware: Recent Comic Strip Pages from The Acme Novelty Library Series
Chris Ware: Recent Comic Strip Pages from The Acme Novelty Library Series at Carl Hammer Gallery in Chicago, IL. "... Carl Hammer Gallery proudly welcomes the genius of Chris Ware back for another luminous solo appearance. This newest body of original work comes mainly from his two most recent publications The Acme Novelty Library #17 and #18. While most of the superlatives about the uncanny mastery Ware demonstrates in his story-telling art have already been said, new insights re his unique personal perspective on life culls a never-ending stream of new interpretation and understanding. He is the widely acknowledged giant within this burgeoning genre. Ware’s brilliance rests on his development of a language of simple graphics focusing on timelessly simple life experiences, transforming them into profound and understandable declarations concerning the human condition."
