Copro Gallery presents a group art exhibition curated by artist Martin Wittfooth. Bringing together 29 internationally renowned contemporary painters, Dark Water is a collaborative exploration of a theme that yields both personal as well as universal interpretations. 

Historically in art and literature, the imagery of dark water has made a symbolic allusion to various states of the inner self, such as the murky depths of the subconscious or the raging seas of our more turbulent  moods. Alternatively, in our modern age the imagery of dark water can also provoke a reflection on such topics as environmental imbalance and a global dependency on - and uneasy relationship with - the dark waters of industry. Ferrying us across this stygian visual landscape are some of the most celebrated painters of our era. Artists in this group have their work included in such public collectio as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Brooklyn Museum, The Smithsonian Institute, and London's National Portrait Gallery.
