New York City-based artist John Copeland is presenting a selection of large-scale artworks at solo exhibit in London titled “Your Heaven Looks Just Like My Hell.” Situated at Damien Hirst‘s Newport Street Gallery, the show displays 25 abstract and representational paintings spotlighting various subjects in everyday scenarios. Each painting is primarily produced using acrylics and oils.
“I’m concerned with the dynamic between surface and undercurrent, myths and realities,” expressed Copeland in a statement. “All of my work plays with the act of viewing and being aware of the act of viewing, in terms of our collective visual culture and the images we see with every day.”
