Ron Copeland


Based in Pittsburgh, Ron Copeland is a multi-media artist whose practice centers on the recontextualization of salvaged materials from abandoned spaces in the Rust Belt region. Forgotten architectural fragments and vestiges of the commerciality of bygone eras are transformed into an original visual language that is deliberately nostalgic, yet given new life by unexpected juxtapositions and reimagined purposes. In addition to major public projects and commissioned works, his pieces have been exhibited in solo and group shows across the US.
