AN INTRODUCTION TO ABSTRACT PAINTING with Artist Eveline LUPPI - Conversation & Interactive POSTPONED - New Date to be Announced

Exploring the arrival and establishment of Abstract Art in America, Artist Eveline LUPPI will lead this event-- a conversation and interactive painting activity with all attendees.  To JOIN the Introduction to Abstract Painting with Eveline LUPPI, call 401-294-6840 or e-mail: WAACommunityEvents@gmail.com; a minimum of 6 participants will be required, maximum attendance is 15. $50 to participate plus $15 materials fee.

Years of exploration with paint have led Eveline Luppi’s journey to create work that is technically challenging and visually inspiring to the viewer. Her work draws from the tradition of the Russian Constructivist Movement and Dutch Neoplasticism; her vocabulary is based on geometric techniques, where memory and experience are rendered as deeply structured space, full of passionate transitions and juxtapositions. The use of color is central to her work, evoking emotional states and bringing the viewer to a unified perception of the symbolic content.

Ms. Luppi's dynamic is all about structure and form. It relates to architecture and design, drawing from history and from elements of today's multi-media world. Luppi employs the methodology of constructivism, utilizing both hard-edged and soft-edged line-work—sometimes alone, sometimes in tandem—to create works that readily relate to each other while awakening different sensitivities in the viewer. Her work is inspired by universal experiences: childhood, the deep emotional spirit and psyche, and the meditative, reflective state.  More about Eveline Luppi HERE.
