Known for his large-scale renderings of imaginative and richly coloured creatures, Shipwreck showcases 43 recent works in Opheim’s signature style, with a fresh emphasis on narrative elements that cohere the pieces together and open new avenues in his practice.
For the exhibition, the gallery will be transformed into an overgrown, supernaturally lit terrain – inspired by the scene depicted in the painting that the exhibition takes its name from. Sprawling vines and life-sized trees surround Opheim’s unusual and impossible characters, offering a surprising exploration of the tragedy and beauty of humanity.
Shipwreck will be on view from September 10 2021 to October 7th 2021, with an opening reception on September 10th from 7 PM to 1 AM.
