Works by William N. Copley appear in Kinder Gentler Nation, an intergenerational group show presented by Karma featuring artists that “use the figure as a point of departure and arrival.”
Other artists include:
Derrick Alexis Coard
Barkley L. Hendricks
Woody De Othello
From the press release:
“Here are dancers, skeletons, humanoids, caricatures, aliens, Afrogods, rubber-hose cartoons, dapper gents, melting limbs, wrestlers, fools, aristocrats. These figures are sites for narrative, abstraction, symbology, architectural deconstruction, portraiture, surrealism and a myriad of other strategies, drawn, scratched, painted, sculpted, and collaged. Together as a motley and intriguingly ill-fitting group, themes and conversations, not to mention multiple overlapping histories (Appropriation, Classicism, Funk, Outsider Art, Pop), emerge between the artists.”
The show will be on view until February 9, 2018. For more information, please contact Karma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
