The Gallery Cafe presents a selection of new paintings and prints by Carl Stimpson. Gallery Cafe, 21 Old Ford Road, Bethnal Green, London, E2 9PL. Privet View - Thursday, June 2nd at 7:30pm - June 29th at 6:30pm.

Redolent of wartime propaganda posters, Carl Stimpson’s paintings are a call to arms against the visual doldrums. Dominated by images of soldiers hurrying to battle, appropriated from Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s Boy Commandos comics of the 1940’s, Stimpson’s paintings make exigent the allegory of visual immediacy. Ballooning breasts of femmes fatales appropriated from Frank Frazetta’s illustrated fantasy-worlds, playfully contrast and sexualise the images of war and machinery that they exaggeratedly tower above. Like the chiselled chin of a Waffen SS guard, their over-developed protrusion incites a feverish compliance. Although no blood is actually seen to be spilled in these painted narratives, the smack of red lipgloss, or the claret of a revealing nightgown, suggest a sanguinary conclusion.

In opposition to the terrifying rhetoric within the captions of propaganda posters, Stimpson’s narrators express – through thought balloons, not speech bubbles – their internal malaise and human conditions. Incongruously, these thoughts recall lyrics from songs, devoid of their original context, they take on sinister and wistful undertones. These are paintings to arouse the army of the psyche, beware the consequences.
All are welcome to the privet view on the first Thursday of June. If you can come along that would be great.
All the best. Carl.

Jack Kirby is the legendary icon responsible for bringing to life, the modern day superhero.

His work from the 40's through to his death in the early 90's, didnt just help shape the way in which comic art is seen today, but practically changed the whole world with his dynamic visionary style.

He invented sometimes with his co-conspirator Stan Lee, the Fantastic Four, the original X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor,
Iron Man, the Silver Surfer, Doctor Doom, Galactus, Uatu the Watcher, Magneto, Ego the Living Planet, the Inhumans and their hidden city of Attilan, and the Black Panther — comics' first known black superhero — and his African nation of Wakanda.
Plus a whole other universe of colourful fantasy wonder like the New Gods, Mister Miracle, and The Forever People.

The list of iconic characters is endless and it's a real shame that the whole world knows them all by sight but may not know the genius who brought them to life.
Marvel Comics is known as 'the house that Jack built' because of his amazing legacy.

This show is our tribute to the king with several incredible internationally renowned artists showing how the king Kirby influenced their lives!
