Karel Funk

Jessica Silverman Gallery

The gallery presents four paintings by Funk, his first solo show on the West Coast. For over a decade, Funk has made highly subjective portraits in an intensely realistic style. The "Hoods" series was inspired by a feeling of intimacy and anonymity that Funk felt riding the New York City subway.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Karel Funk :

In one gallery, we are presented with the wonderfully strange works featured in "Biomorphic Virtuosity," a group exhibition presenting works by Aleksandra Domanovi?, Isaac Julien and Christina Quarles. In another gallery, we encounter the hyper-real figurative works of Karel Funk, whose images of vaguely disembodied hoodies are bound to resonate with Bay Area tech workers and suit-types alike.
