About Dash Shaw Making The Abyss
Dash Shaw Making The Abyss features work from BodyWorld, Bottomless
Belly Button, The Uncanny Reproduction and The Unclothed Man in the
Shaw's recent works (BodyWorld, The Unclothed Man, and Bottomless
Belly Button) connect an interest with the human body, informed by
figure drawing, with humorous character-driven narratives. This show
displays his original art for these stories, which are often a
combination of traditional crowquill and ink work with gaouche paints,
acetate sheets, animation-style backgrounds, colored marker
storyboards, and mixed media collages.
Dash Shaw was born in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in
Richmond, Virginia. He graduated with a BFA in Cartooning/Illustration
from the School of Visual Arts, Manhattan, in 2005.
Dash Shaw Making The Abyss is supported in part by Pantheon Books and
the members of MoCCA.
