"This body of work speaks to our uniqueness as individuals as well as combining sculptural elements into a melting pot whole as a direct commentary on humanity, in the grand tradition of caricature from artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci onwards, through William Hogarth and Honore Daumier to Ralph Steadman, amongst many others of distinction, exploring the pulsating turbulence that is the individual psyche but is also society at large.
As much as we are each unique in our own right, Cope’s studies bind us all together as a symphony of mankind with all its atonality, discord, flights of fancy and harmonies, to address emotional states, relationships, mortality and us in general." ~ Max Presneill Head Curator Torrance Art Museum
