The Copley Society of Art is proud to present Entangled Lines, a collection of spray-paint and oil paintings by Percy Fortini-Wright. These paintings will be on display until October 28th 2015 in the upper gallery. Pulling the inspiration for his works from the beautiful, creative and destructive forces of Mother Nature as well as architecture, Wright’s work takes the audience on an observational journey of places, spaces, and faces; blurring the lines between practices and impressions of subjects.
This Boston-based artist earned his BFA and MFA from the Boston Institute of Art at Lesley University. He has produced numerous solo shows in the Boston area and has participated in multiple group exhibitions throughout the years. As a graffiti artist he shows a carefree innocence with bold daring marks, not distinguishing between a scribble and fully realized object. He is known for his avant-garde mixture of graffiti with traditional formats and techniques, as he commonly combines oil paint and spray paint in the same painting. This exhibition is harmonized with contrasting values and the strength of the dark, middle, and light tones. His inspirations range from painters like Zorn, and John Singer Sargent to wild style pieces and tags done with drippy markers.
We welcome you to join us and experience these trancelike paintings for yourself. The gallery is open to the public Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00AM to 6:00PM, and on Sunday from noon to 5:00PM. Feel free to stop by; we look forward to seeing you!
