A pioneer in the new visual arts genre of abstract sequential art, Kym Tabulo’s new body of work Abstract Comics #4 combines the conventions of fine art with traditional comics. With a focus on form and technique, this multidimensional exhibition explores the passage of time through rhythmic narratives rather than telling a story, offering the chance for the audience to invent their own story or find a theme. Using the process of sequence and movement across a variety of subject matter, media and styles, this hypnotic series invites you to reimagine conventional artforms in this emerging 21st century genre.
