For those in the know, the title of GARY PANTER's latest show, "Pictures from the Psychedelic Swamp, 1972-2001" is all you need to hear to motivate your ass down to CLEMENTINE GALLERY with the quickness. For those still scratching their heads, Panter is widely regarded as the "father of punk comics," and the Brooklyn-based artist played a pivotal role in transforming underground comics into a viable form of art and one of the pivotal early figures in the so-called "Juxtapoz art world." For those STILL scratching their heads, no, you probably didn't see any of his early work from the groundbreaking graphic magazine "RAW," but if you've ever seen an episode of "Pee Wee's Playhouse," you've seen Gary's outrageous set designs that made the show the visual vanguard of the toddler set and won him three Emmys to boot. Assembled for the first time in this show, are some of Gary's most seminal works from three decades of his career including early drawings, sculpture, eclectic ephemera, and large-scale paintings, in what amounts to a museum-worthy retrospective (hint, hint New Museum & Brooklyn Museum). Bring your checkbooks too folks, cuz it's all for sale. HAVE A LOOK:
