David Opdyke at Magnan Metz Gallery

In David Opdyke’s nimble hands, subtly altered vintage postcards meant to stoke civic pride instead provoke dismay in a new series on view at Chelsea’s Magnan Metz Gallery. Opdyke prophesies doom in drawings, textiles and animations themed on class warfare and a dysfunctional government. Here, an august Chicago High School experiences a surreal trauma inflicted by a giant pencil (Through Oct 22nd). David Opdyke, A for Effort (082), gouache and ink on vintage postcard, 4 x 6 inches, 2016.
