(W/A/CA) R. Sikoryak
R. Sikoryak, the master of the pop culture pastiche, visually interprets the complete text of the supreme law of the land with more than a century of American pop culture icons. Sikoryak distills the very essence of the government legalese from the abstract to the tangible, the historical to the contemporary. Among Sikoryak's spot-on unions of government articles and amendments with famous comic book characters: the eighteenth amendment that instituted prohibition is articulated with Homer Simpson running from Chief Wiggum; the fourteenth amendment that solidifies citizenship to all people born and naturalized in the USA is personified by Ms. Marvel; and, of course, the nineteenth amendment offering women the right to vote is a glorious depiction of Wonder Woman breaking free from her chains.
