Norfolk, VA - popblossom is pleased to present, DECONSTRUCTING THE WHEEL, an introduction to the late painter, Kurt Godwin, one of DC’s most accomplished artists over the last 30 years. An Opening Reception is scheduled for Friday, April 21st, 6:30 - 8:30 PM at WPA Gallery in The Monticello Arcade in Downtown Norfolk.
DECONSTRUCTING THE WHEEL features the paintings of conceptual artist, Kurt Godwin. Permeating the selected works is a rich visual language. Juxtaposing emblems in alchemy with imagery from the natural world, Godwin addresses philosophical perplexities while endeavoring to understand the universe in which we live.
Kurt Godwin passed away in 2014 at age 58. He was a passionate and imaginative artist, loving husband, friend, role model and professor. His works have been widely exhibited in the metropolitan DC area as well as nationally. His vibrantly hued paintings continue to capture the imagination of collectors.
