Description Tenth in a series of 15 paintings by Matthew Leaper (ML) under a Duality of Man theme that was inspired by the human contradictions that define our experience. This piece - The Superman - is based upon a quote from Friedrich Nietzsche: Man is a rope stretched between the animal and the Overman -- a robe over an abyss. Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Zarathustra's Prologue. Actual size of 24x48.
Matthew Leaper, Philadelphia, PA Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement Thanks for review of my galleries. I utilize art as means to express concepts that words cannot fully define. Each piece is created within a "contemporary comic" form of popular art that is inspired by a combination of Andy Warhol and the Marvel Universe.
