Curtis Gannon

Curtis Gannon (1974) was born in Canada and was raised in a small south Texas town, until his family moved to Houston when he was fifteen. Gannon completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Houston, and then received a master’s degree in Painting at San Diego State University. His work explores the structure and imagery of American action comics in the mediums of painting, collage, installation, and plexiglass constructions. Referencing the energetic color, line, and shape of comic book illustration, these abstractions examine the genre’s use of sequential narrative to suggest time, action, perspective, and a sense of perpetual expectation.
