EducationEdit

Nathan Coppedge began his undergraduate work at Bard College in 2001, and subsequently developed schizophrenia. He abandoned his hope of becoming a professor of philosophy, and instead focused on art for a number of years. Coppedge continues to pursue a degree in philosophy at SCSU, where he is a member of the International Honor Society for Philosophy, a merit-based award.

PhilosophyEdit

Coppedge's philosophy focuses mainly around objective knowledge and its applications. Common themes are coherence, qualified properties, absoluteness, and provability. In other work he has introduced a general formula called 'paroxysm' for solving problems and paradoxes. His work was the subject of a July 20, 2017 interview with Janae Sharp of the Health IT Blog Network on his philosophy and its implications for the future of technology and medicine. Coppedge distinguishes the method of categorical deduction from previously-existing schools of thought, such as Venn, Cartesian Coordinates, categorical syllogisms and imperatives, and analogies.

ArtEdit

Nathan Coppedge is an abstract artist primarily in pen-and-ink, and has also created paintings and digital art. He has exhibited in numerous cafes and galleries in the New Haven, CT area. He was one of the early popularizers of Hyper-Cubism, a movement that is still not widely recognized, beginning his earliest works of this description in 2002 and 2003. He is one of the only artists to use this label extensively in his work. On his Gallery page, Coppedge claims he once received a $1 million check for a painting called Circus Ghost, but turned it down fearing taxes or a loan scheme.

InfluencesEdit

Philosophically, his influences include modern philosophers such as Ludwig Wittgenstein, David K. Lewis, Novalis, Lichtenberg, and Nietzsche. Artistically, he has cited numerous influences, particularly M.C. Escher, Francis Picabia, Georges Braque, and Juan Gris. His whimsical inventions he says are inspired by everyday objects, such as coffee cups, children's toys, and water pumps. His Romantic inclinations come from classes in poetry from the Romantic Period that he took while at Bard College. Coppedge is also inspired by architecture, computer games, and concepts of paradise.

ARTISTIC WORKS

"Metaphysical Style: The Twerk" was sold to a collector named Lehr in London. "Small House" was sold to Gail Hardin, a former neighbor. "Folded Flame" was sold to an anonymous buyer during the exhibit at Claire's Corner Copia. Coppedge's work has not been appraised recently, but works have sold on numerous occasions for $100 or more, and as high as $400. Coppedge's status as a kind of renaissance man is likely to increase interest and value for collectors.
