Anthony Lister Review

Kqed says: Lister often works with images of superheroes, but they aren't fighting crimes or saving damsels in distress. They're fallen, tied up or just plain downtrodden and vaguely abstracted, much like our childhood memories. The artist has also included distorted images of recognizable cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse and Toucan Sam in some of his past works as a commentary on societies in which a barrage of media is unavoidable. The majority of the works in the Cracker Got Snapped by the Pops collection don't contain Lister's usual iconography, but they maintain his veiled messages about contemporary culture.
