Vertical Gallery is pleased to present Copyright 'REFLECTED IN THE SHADOWS'. The exhibition runs March 4 - 25, opening on Saturday March 4, noon-6pm.
In his latest Solo show 'REFLECTED IN THE SHADOWS', UK artist Copyright continues exploration into themes of introspection, inner turmoil, anxiety and balance. The all-new body of work features paintings on canvas, skateboards and painted directly onto vintage comic books.
By incorporating the bright bold aesthetic and characters of comic books, he is able to create a sense of fantasy and conflict, juxtaposed by bright and eye catching colors and iconography found in POP and Street Art. The resulting works are simultaneously light in visuals but dark in context.
Copyright's paintings represent ideals from the modern world and popular culture, portrayed within classic imagery of simple beauty. Many of his paintings tell stories from ancient mythology, represented by modern idealism and unattainable visions of glamour found in fashion, music and popular culture. Fusing street art, graffiti and traditional styles, he uses a mixture of classic painting techniques, printing and spraypaint.
We're excited to have Copyright return after his first solo 'FABLES' in March 2016 and his duo show with Gemma Compton 'TWO SIDES' in March 2019.
