Lupo removes the figures and text from comics to deconstruct their visual design and narrative. These incomplete images provide viewers with the opportunity to complete the narrative with their own preconceived notions. Lupo chose the comic “The Invincible Iron Man”, volume 01, issue 178 (published in 1982) as the basis for this body of work because the character Iron Man never appears directly in this issue.
Joseph Lupo received his BFA from Bradley University and his MFA from the University of Georgia. Joseph is currently the Printmaking Program Coordinator at West Virginia University. He has had solo/two person exhibitions at the Contemporary Art workshop in Chicago, at 1708 Gallery in Richmond, The Indianapolis Art Center, and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
