You Did What To My Comics?

When: Sept. 9  to Nov. 30

Where: Bernard Osher Marin Jewish Community Center, 200 N San Pedro Rd.

Time: 4 p.m.

From afar, these papercuts might remind you of a Chagall window. But up close, the magic is revealed: artist Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik layers meaning into his work by meticulously positioning cut-up pieces of comic books, maps and holy books destined for ritual burial beneath delicately sliced paper.

The result is visual biblical commentary that uses the dialog and imagery of familiar comic books (think Iron Man, the Hulk, etc.) to tell another story. Filtered through the twin lenses of traditional paper cutting and contemporary graphic storytelling, his work visually reinterprets popular bible stories such as the burning bush, the parting of the Red Sea, the orbits of the planets and Noah and the ark.
