The Holy Batman

The Holy Batman

Oil on Canvas, 2012
Dimensions (without frame): 85 inches x 145 inches (315cm x 190cm)

This piece took approximately 1200 hours spread out
over 7 months, and depicts nearly 75 different Batman figurines,
primarily from the 80's and 90's. The painting also includes
iconography that influenced the creation and aesthetic of the
Batman universe (a tiny Zorro figure in the top left, the pipe and
magnifying glass of Sherlock Holmes near the bottom left, a Mad Hatter, a
da Vinci ornithopter flying in the landscape in the background). The Twin
Towers are depicted in the New York Gotham City skyline (my childhood
Gotham included the Twin Towers). The frame is covered in over 360 Batman
figures that were created using silicone moulds. The original toy of the
central figure is encased in a shadowbox attached to the top of the frame.
