Black Kirby

In September there will be a gallery exhibit entitled Black Kirby at Jackson State University in Mississippi and here are a couple of samples. I like what I'm seeing. Artists John Jennings and Stacy Robinson are definitely channeling some Jack Kirby energy into their work. The piece entitled Totem Oba has so much intricate detail layered on top of that energy that I almost felt I was looking at a newfound collaboration between Jack Kirby and Philippe Druillet.

The Black Kirby show will be housed in the JSU Liberal Arts Building and will feature about fifty works of art. You can see a slideshow of eight of the pieces over here and you can read a little bit more over here.
