CAPES, GODS, AND SUPERHEROES
A visual art exhibit featuring new work by Varina Rush
Capes, Gods, and Superheroes playfully explores the relationship between religion, idolatry, and fan fiction. What do gods and mythical heroes symbolize to the people that worship them, and why are capes so cool? Are Superman and Jesus really the same guy in a different guise? Do Batman and Buddha have the same utility belt?
Rush’s quirky allegorical creations begin with images of spiritual deities superimposed and mashed-up with images of Superheroes. Rush adds oil, watercolor, and acrylic to complete each piece. The result is innovative, provocative, and culturally relevant new work.
In addition to the Gods and Superheroes series, Rush has created a mural in Frenetic Theater's exhibit hall.
