Kuperus & Miller: Artist Conversation

Simone DeSousa Gallery says
Join artists Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller as they discuss the works in their exhibiton Discreet Vulgarities. Walking a thin line between the grotesque and the humorous, these new works incorporate common elements and images such as 2" x 4" studs, pieces of plywood, mess-ups and fragments of the body. The new exhibition, including paintings, photographs, sculptures and video, also references situations of the everyday, social taboos, and "purpose," and runs through Saturday, October 10.
