Something about the West. Something about the space.
"Craig Roper's content-rich, process-oriented work is an ever-evolving landscape. Referencing the culture and ethos of The West, Roper considers himself a "landscape artist", and includes imagery and traces of road trips, guns, signage and the textures of the land to form an encyclopedia of The Great Plains. Moving beyond any singular media, he continually reworks old work into new. His intent is to move each piece so far beyond the original that it morphs into something else." -Alex Priest, The Bemis Arts Center. -May 2016.
