Kolbe Roper

Looking at queer culture and histories of San Francisco I erase Drummer Magazine covers with silver polish, and use hand embroidery on leather, a traditional kink material, to speak of the forgetting and erasure of histories.

Kolbe Roper was born and raised in Oklahoma and a recent graduate of California College of the Arts. He has exhibited work in the Bay Area and the Midwest, and in the collections of La Grange Museum, Richard P. Nadeau & Virginia Jennings, Kirkpatrick Foundation, and Oklahoma Supreme Court.
