The Art of William Zdan @ The Egan

October 1, 2014 in Downtown Fullerton Art Walk

On Friday Oct 3rd from 6 to 10PM, The Egan Gallery is proud to present “Knackers Yard” a retrospective look at the development of artist William Zdan from working class Detroit punker up to selected pieces from his most recent work “The Humors” an exhibition held at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in LA this summer.


William Zdan was raised in the manufacturing community of Detroit, and this has unquestionably influenced his world view. Classic techniques and religious iconography are stripped of their cliché and given new provocation. His most recent series examines the longstanding connections between medicine, secular art and social defiance. The Humors (the preponderance of body fluids, respective organs, earth elements and corresponding human temperaments) are found in each of the paintings, along with bloodletting tools, leeches and other (now debunked and marginalized) medical conventions (like phrenology).

Hope to see you there!
