"The Super Neumanns" Photographs by Danny Neumann

February 2017

In February 2017, R. Pela Contemporary Art and The Walter Art Gallery presented Danny Neumann: The Super Neumanns, a new exhibit of work. The show featured Mr. Neumann’s newest series of photographs: 365 images that show a family of super heroes going about their daily lives.

“Mr. and Mrs. Super Neumann are custom-made figures crafted from vintage G.I. Joe parts,” Mr. Neumann says. “On ‘Day One,’ they move into a Fisher Price dollhouse my sister had when she was a kid. It starts simply with them doing stuff like cleaning and painting. But as the days and weeks and months roll on, the vignettes get more elaborate.”


Mr. Neumann built each custom set for each photo shoot, accumulating hundreds of tiny props and accessories.

Mr. Neumann, who has been making art for seven years, has recently shown in Phoenix at Central Arts Plaza, The Newton, and Pita Jungle Roosevelt, the release stated. His work has also been included in shows at the I.D.E.A. Museum, MADE, Artlink’s Juried Exhibition, and at {9} The Gallery.
