A critique of art and power appears in the cartoon style of Peter Saul, an artist who consciously situates his work against the elitism of the art world. In addition to engaging at times in his own scathing brand of appropriation, Saul upsets conventional notions of high art by drawing upon the sex-and-violence fantasy worlds of Mad magazine and the alternative comic strips of R. Crumb. Combining his signature Day-glo colors with writing and misshapen figures in a parody of Texas pride, Cowboy Dentist is a disconcertingly perfect example.
