Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street),is pleased to announce our upcoming group exhibition The Devil Within and Without: Curated work by Keri Oldham and Colette Robbins.Curated by Keri Oldham and Colette Robbins, The Devil Within and Without presents a group exhibition themed on the inner and outer demons that shape many artist’s creative practices.  Drawing inspiration from folk and outsider art traditions as well as psychology and religion, this exhibition features work by both Texas and New York based artists. The Devil Within and Without includes work by Lanie Delay, Bruce Lee Webb, Ashley Whitt, Erin Stafford, Colette Robbins, Shane McAdams, Ken Tisa, and Richard Hart. Using sculpture, painting, drawing, and photography, this group of artists lifts the wool over our eyes to show us the psychological underbelly of a variety of personal and cultural norms. These artists do not stop at the surface level, but delve into the dark side of their ideas, not be masochistic but rather to gain new insights into the world, by exploring what is sticky, prickly, or uncouth.
