Equinox Gallery is delighted to present Omnibus, an exhibition of new works by Sonny Assu. In this exhibition, Assu is continuing to explore the way that language and myths can straddle multiple cultures and times by bringing together comics from his childhood and Assu’s classic pop culture sensibility with a Kwakwaka’wakw twist. The comics are all chosen for specific reasons — you can often find Indigenous references, for example Batman goes to Alaska and meets a Shaman, or a story focused on Warpath, an Apache Native American character and X-Men member. Assu has painted over the grid of comic books using bright colours and highlighting Indigenous ovoid and formline elements traditional to his culture. Assu’s conceptual influence for this body of work includes the work of Tim Rollins + K.O.S., Andy Warhol, and traditional Kwakwaka’wakw artists.
