London, January 5, 2017: London’s Curious Duke Gallery is proud to announce the must-see new show of artist Zoe Moss, ‘Super Realism’, launching 2nd February and closing on the 25th February.

Inspired by the eye-popping costumes on display at comic cons, Moss produces unique work based on superheroes and famous icons – with a humorous narrative twist.

These popular pieces juxtapose the fantastic with the mundane.
You’ll find Wonder Woman trudging back from Tescos, Bane chilling in his slippers, and Judge Dredd brandishing a baguette. Enabling the public to see a solo show of hers in a gallery setting for the first time, Moss explains how this exhibition is particularly significant:
‘This show means a great deal to me, as it’s the first time my Icon/Superhero work will be shown all together’, she says.
‘My newer work focuses more on humour - it depicts superhero characters and famous icons in unexpected, everyday situations.’
One of the rising stars in the UK art world, Moss has previously been shortlisted for a number of prestigious exhibitions, including the BP Portrait Award and John Moore’s Painting Prize.

She’s been featured in the Royal Academy Summer Show for two years running, and had her work exhibited in the Saatchi Gallery.
‘Super Realism’ offers a rare chance to view all her superhero work together as one collection, and provides a fantastic opportunity for art buyers to own one of these unique pieces from as little as £150.

So put on your cape, get your spider-senses tingling, and come visit the Curious Duke Gallery for a super surreal experience this February.
