The Wild Kingdoms
August 24, 2019 - September 30, 2019
The Wild Kingdoms references the numerous nature specials Coffy watched as a kid. His latest body of work combines his love of animals with his interest in design aesthetic and juxtaposition. With each painting, he creates a vignette about life, death, and the searching moments in between.
Joshua Coffy draws inspiration from the natural world, scientific illustrations, his love of animals, and how humans relate to them. His work includes multiple layers of texture including paper patterns, maps, newspaper articles, and acrylic paint. He is a self-taught artist living and working in San Francisco.
