Napoleon Complexity @ AFA Gallery

article

Napoleon complex” is a term describing a theorized condition occurring in people of short stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behavior, and carries the implication that such behaviour is compensatory for the subject’s stature.- Wikipedia

Press Release:

NEW YORK, NY: AFA Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of a new group show that will take place simultaneously in New York and Las Vegas.  The exhibition will explore the creativity of a number of artists when confined to a 10 x 10 inch square.   Over 100 new original works will be on display during the exhibition.  Limited edition prints of selected works will also be available.

The tongue-in-cheek title conveys the juxtaposition of complex, technically virtuous artwork confined to a small physical space; much like the enormity and grandeur of Napoleon Bonaparte confined to a small physical form.  The artists in the exhibition have accepted the challenge to express their complex artistic vision without the use of unlimited space.
