In Between Scenes

Painter Sean Frye combines his love of comic books with his love of more traditional "fine" art (although if you've been paying any attention to comic books, you'll know that whatever gap exists between comic book and fine art is rapidly diminishing) on every canvas. Realistic monochrome portraits of people with wrinkles and bad comb overs are layered atop backgrounds that star four-color figures rendered in a more traditional comic-strip fashion. Each piece is an amalgam of techniques and times, a little intersection of the two worlds that further blurs the boundaries which separate them. Strange Adventures, a new exhibition of Frye's paintings hangs appropriately enough in the gallery at Star Clipper (6392 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-9110 or The show has a free opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 24, and the work remains up through Friday, September 11.
