JAM Artist of the Month for March 2020 is EVELINE LUPPI
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.
Luppi was strongly influenced by the Dutch painter Mondrian: she was drawn to his painting Broadway Boogie Woogie with its rhythmic movements, colorful geometric forms, and overall structure. Its great title—referencing a lively dance on an energetic street in the center of Manhattan.
The artist’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, as evident in her colorful structural Treehouse
paintings; the deep emotional spirit and psyche explored in the stark black and white Structure/Construction series; the meditative, reflective state evoked by the patterns and rhythms of her monochromatic White Sands Revisited.
Eveline Luppi’s work is both highly emotional and emblematic of the complexities of contemporary life. She is committed to self-discovery and makes her personal narrative accessible to the viewer.
