Andreas Hofer: Welt ohne Ende

Front Cover
If Goya had collaborated with Lichtenstein, it may have resulted in something like the dark Pop visions of Andreas Hofer. He draws on film, comics, fairy tales, myths, and religion for his monstrous figures in nightmarish settings. Dripping with paint, the "Justice League" series places superheroes in a peril their powers seem unable to overcome: Batman and Wonder Woman in "Dying Stars" morph into trees, their arms sprouting branches and their legs roots, while a shadowy pterodactyl hovers in the background. In other works, Hofer shows he's not without black humor in appropriating iconic material, as when he has Malevich's "Black Square" sprout vampire teeth.
