A lot of people told me this painting was their favorite piece of mine at Vertical Gallery's Heroes & Villains show. With the original pre-sold to a collector in Australia, I was glad I could offer more people the opportunity to own it through this edition of 15 prints. I believe we're all searching for deeper connection with one another. My goal with the Superhero series is to create work that makes the viewer feel that connection. Spider-Man's body language is heart-wrenching, the composition echos this feeling of isolation, and his physical surroundings mirror an internal drowning of emotions. I couldn't be prouder of this painting and would feel fortunate to create more work that speaks as clearly moving forward.
