The world according to CPLY is an antic, ribald and candy-colored place. [...] "Let Warhol have his shoes and electric chair, Picabia and Kafka divine machines - let me have my grand piano and guillotine" was Copley 's maxim later in life. Copley always treated pleasure and pain dispassionately." Toby Kamps in The world according to Cply, 2016.

Le monde selon CPLY est un endroit antique, grivois, couleur bonbon. [...] "Laissez à Warhol ses chaussures et sa chaise électrique, à Picabia et Kafka leurs divines machines - et je garde mon grand piano et ma guillotine" était la maxime de Copley à la fin de sa vie. Copley traita toujours le plaisir et la souffrance avec objectivité." Toby Kamps dans The world according to Cply, 2016.
