This great piece was created byÂ Rivane Neuenschwander in 2004. Â It’s called â€œZÃ© Carioca No. 4â€ and you can see it in the New York Museum of Modern Art. Â It beautifully strips down comics to their bare minimum : panels, colors and balloons.
It was later also used for the cover ofÂ Comic Abstraction, a book from a 2007 exhibition in the Moma, which showed new work by contemporaryÂ artists who “abstract images culled from slapstick, comic strips and films, cartoons and animation into a new representational mode to address perplexing issues about war and global conflicts, the loss of innocence and ethnic and cultural stereotyping”.
