SUPPLEMENT is a series of seven single folded broadsides by John Dowd. Each collages a set of images that address a chosen topic: SUMMERTIME, PERFORMANCE, WRIST WATCH, EARTH, SUN, SOLO, and SPECIAL. Sourced from a variety of media, they are reassembled to build new narratives.
SUMMERTIME SUPPLEMENT culls together visual depictions of summer. It starts with a Disney comic in which a swimming Donald Duck--a character who appears throughout Dowd's oeuvre--reacts to a shark's dorsal fin (which is really a fake held up by three smaller ducks holding their breath underwater). The seasonal imagery continues inside where a more contemporary version of Donald lounges on a beach chair with a pin-up model, Daffy Duck smiles at the sun, and illustrations of tropical plants and fruits fill framed rectangles. The broadsheet closes with a photograph of two ducks floating in rippled water.
