On view until August 27th at Sadie Coles HQ in London is X-Rated by William Copley. Copley's provocative and sexually graphic paintings draw from a combination of pop and american folk aesthetics that implement seemingly boneless flesh and bright, abstracted, patterned background of wall paper, blankets and floor tiles from the seventies (the time at which these paintings were made).

Copley comes from a very rich background being acquainted with influential surrealists such as Duchamp, which likely helped him to reach create such a expressive painting style.
