100 Scenes

Asemic author Tim Gaze’s graphic novel, 100 Scenes, unfolds through a hundred abstract “scenes” comprised of raw scans of original paintings made by using the technique of decalcomania invented by the Surrealist artist Oscar Domínguez in 1936. In the Notes section of the book, Gaze describes the images as touching “upon two emerging areas: abstract comics (known in French as bandes dessinées abstraites, or bds abstraites) and asemic writing. These areas transcend languages, and offer the possibility of inter-cultural communication without words.”
