Comic Art News: Tim Lane at Scott Eder Gallery

The art and stories of Tim Lane

October 13 – November 24, 2017

Opening Friday, October 13th, 5-9 PM

SCOTT EDER GALLERY welcomes to its walls the art and stories of Tim Lane. Featuring more than 50 pages
of original art, “What Trouble?” brings Lane's meticulously

created work out of the book and into his rst solo art show. Lane celebrates an Americana of bygone days with a unique intensity in his black and white illustrations.

Lane's rst major graphic novel, Abandoned Cars, [Fantagraphics, 2008] was nominated for the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Collection of Stories and has been translated into French and Spanish. His work has appeared in Rolling Stone, Wired, The New York Times, The Wall Street

Journal, The Village Voice, The Boston Globe,Utne Reader, and many others. His comics are widely published in anthologies, including Fantagraphics' Hotwire and Mome, Smoke Signal, and DC Comics' Bizarro World. He also contributes infographics to The Believer Magazine.

In Abandoned Cars, a compilation of many of his indie comics and strips, Lane writes and illustrates a dark, gritty “noir” world in the American heart- land, on the road, in bars, on trains, in disturbed minds. With impeccable detail, careful lines, stippling, washes, and plenty of dark shadows, his work ventures deep into what he calls the “Great American Mythological Drama... the mythological fabric of American culture, characters who are living in the underbelly of the American Dream, and the disillusionment inherent in the con ict between the ideals of American life and its reality.”

His hyperdetailed style conjures a vision of America that streams down to us through folklore and legend as much as it does newspapers, books, and historical documents. For Lane, pop culture manifests the super cial result of our deeper ideological perceptions and self-de nitions.

Lane’s most recent graphic novel, is loosely connected to Abandoned Cars, but delves deeper into the myth- ological landscape, featuring short stories, strips, cutouts, foldouts, letters, mini-stories and even poetry linked together by the experience of wander- ing, both literally and guratively.

Across a haunted landscape populated by the ghosts of a rich ctional tapestry, we witness a young man's du- bious quest to discover the myth of the protagonist from an obscure vintage comic strip, sociopathic hobos in boxcars, misled young men whose facial pores sprout worms and who throw up babies into gas station toilets; and visit modern “Hoovervilles.”

Lane has also created a graphic novel about Steve McQueen, Full Throttle Cool [Quayside, 2015]. His sketchbook work was included in the anthology Graphic: Inside Sketchbooks of the World's Great Graphic Designers, [ e Monacelli Press, 2012]. Lane has produced weekly illustrated columns and comic feature stories for the New York Press and The Riverfront Times. He currently teaches drawing

at Washington University in St Louis' Sam Fox School of Art.

Tim Lane will be present at the opening; books and prints will be available.
