People who have saved this event:


Thomas Jaeckel Gallery is pleased to present Diana Copperwhite’s “Depend on the Morning Sun”, an exhibition that features new large oils on canvas.


The exhibition effectively extends the continuum of abstractions in color that have engaged the artist in recent years.  Fusing schematic shapes and fragments, her apparent abstractions recall a flash of connections through time, or maybe a glimpse of switching of identities, or the way an interior, or an external, space may be seen via moving digitized images.  We are drawn by the vivid light and color of her paintings and are left with a test in our bringing an identification of her imagery.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a monograph with an essay by Gail Levin.

Diana Copperwhite makes big bold oil paintings that excite and stir our twenty-first-century perceptions.  Her compelling images are both complex and energetic.  She is never at a loss for the impulse to paint, though she is coy about revealing her concerns, often throwing the viewer just a few clues and leaving a lot of room for the imagination.  She creates an exquisite tension between abstraction and figuration or representation of any kind.  She appears to tease out this tension to hold our interest, as we both take in the visual splendor of her paintings and try to fathom what they are about.
