  54. 54. …the panel as a kind of window onto a world, becomes problematized in many cases, particularly if one looks at abstract comics. Derik A Badman. Artist Statement In this series of abstract comic pages the narrative is the view of the artist moving from panel to panel at the SXSW Interactive 2010 conference. A panel form is painted into each painting in a shape formed of gesso. Often the gesso is square or rectangular, but there are circular panels as well. Abstract shapes flow over and around the gesso panels. These paintings were done live in the audience at selected panels and presentations at SXSWi. In a traditional comic the ink is focused into linear inking and lettering. Here the ink is a wash that flows in the background. Playing with the materials and constructs of comics in abstraction captures the flow of the conference in which abstract ideas are debated, flaunted, and compared in myriad discussions always partying with creativity, entrepreneurism, success, and hope.
