Energetic and intimate works on paper and large scale 3 dimensional renderings on acrylic, will occupy the gallery walls and courtyard. Demitra Copoulos’s interwoven and interconnected imagery emerge on paper to resemble phenomena of the natural world.
‘Imaginary Experiences’ takes an unserious examination of metaphysics through a visual approach to questions of space and possibility. Visually addressing questions of what is beyond our perception, this series attempts to represent the unseen energy and wave patterns that move through our lives; a personal interpretation of what this invisible world could look like.
In the courtyard Demitra uses clear acrylic sheeting and acrylic paint to create large scale 3D drawings. As you move through the courtyard around each piece, the drawings morph in size and shape, taking on an almost animate characteristic. “My intention is to represent many forms that can exists simultaneously without opposing each other.”
Local artist Demitra Copoulos’s multi-decade career spans several themes. Best known for her large-scale sculptures and installations which are strongly suggestive of tension and confusion to the current more curious investigations on paper. Working with local artists and businesses, she created and co-organized “Temporary Resurfacing,” a large public outdoor multi-video projection event of regional and international media-based artists, which drew thousands of viewers. https://temporaryresurfacing.org/
