Superheroes soar into the Hamptons
Peter and Madeline Powell, Battle of the Sexes. Acrylic on Canvas, 30 x 40.
BRIDGEHAMPTON, NY.- In the Summer of 2014, as Batman turns 75 and Thor, appearing first in 1962 as a Norse hammer-wielding god will be transformed into a female character, Elisa Contemporary Art celebrates comic book heroes and heroines in Contemporary Art in My Hero II. The exhibit opens August 4th at The Design Studio in Bridgehampton, NY. It will run through September 8th.

My Hero II pays tribute to the characters and the artists who bring them to life in four unique ways. The gallery debuts "What Defines Us," a new vision of Batman envisioned in cut and layered Birch wood by Texas artist Mitch McGee. Batman is one of the only Superheroes who rely on intelligence, physical strength and agility plus technological know-how (not super-powers) to fight evil and keep Gotham safe.

Superman and Wonder Woman will be soaring throughout the artworks including in the "Battle of the Sexes", a look at the Superhero lunch boxes of the past created by Hawaii Hyper-realist artists Peter and Madeline Powell. The Justice League will be collaged into the mixed media artwork of Watermill artist, Oliver Peterson.

California Comic book constructionist, Don Morris has all the characters flying, leaping, and strategizing within his dimensional artworks.

These Superheroes have captivated us for decades with their selflessness; their drive to do good and protection of others. They put themselves in danger, while saving others...and keep us all at the edge of our seats while we wait to see what happens next. They have come large and small; masked, caped and armored; male and female; aged and ageless. Always engaging and inspiring.
