This event has ended.

Operating in the broad territory that was originally staked out by the Pop artists, artist Joe Heaps Nelson produces paintings and drawings that bounce between social critique and satire. While his subject matter is generally intuitive, he enjoys mining images from popular culture. Interesting tensions arise from his integration of the rich history of painting with the sometimes beautiful and frequently absurd little dramas of everyday existence.

Joe Heaps Nelson was born in Iowa and was raised by bulldogs. He has his BA in Art History from the University of Pennsylvania. His work has been extensively exhibited both nationally and internationally. Nelson is a regular contributor to Whitehot Magazine and producer of the Police Brutality Coloring Book. He has lived and worked in New York City since 1990.
