Helen Popinchalk: The Sleep of Reason
October 27–December 16, 2017
Weil Gallery, Watson Fine Arts
Silkscreen printer Helen Popinchalk re-creates selections from the series Los Caprichos by Francisco Goya in eye-popping neon color exhibited under black light. Goya’s topsy-turvy world, intermingling the sacred and the profane, is granted a contemporary visual twist with psychedelic color, reinforcing the fact that Los Caprichos is sadly as relevant now as when he created it.
