The Seven Deadly Sins: A Comedy Oil Paintings and Master Drawings, 1994-2014 

September 5 – December 17, 2017  ·  American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center 

Katzen Arts Center Website · 4400 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20016

For the past two decades, William Woodward has delved into the rich history and aesthetic possibilities of the seven deadly sins. The master drawings and narrative paintings in this exhibition owe a great deal to the films of Federico Fellini, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton the com­ media dell’arte tradition. The artist tries to imagine, had these directors and actors been painters, how they might have depicted their subjects in whimsical and elusive ways rather than strident and explicit interpre­tations. In creating The Seven Deadly Sins Woodward is not preaching about sin. Rather, he wanted to paint pictures that no one, including himself, had ever seen before.
