Karl Momen: Homage to William Shakespeare

May 11 — October 5 

Richard III, 1996 by Karl MomenKarl Momen is a Swedish painter and sculptor who is best known as the creator of the epic 87-foot Metaphor: The Tree of Utah sculpture, located adjacent to Interstate 80 in the stark Bonneville Salt Flats region of Utah. Inspired by master of Surrealism, Max Ernst, as well as Europe’s foremost architect, Le Corbusier, Momen’s work is rooted in the visual language of formalism, emphasizing simplistic compositions, color, and symbolism. In his Homage to William Shakespeare suite, from the late 1990s, he was able to synthesize his passion for operatic and dramatic literature, with his love of the musical equivalent of these forms.
