Diana Copperwhite makes big bold compelling oil paintings which are both complex and energetic.
She creates an exquisite tension between abstraction and figuration or representation of any kind. Vibrating spectral bands have become a kind of a trademark in Copperwhite’s recent large paintings, recalling that as she grew up, chemistry and physics were common topics at home.
Copperwhite lives and works in Dublin and New York. Recent solo exhibitions include Reflections on a Darker Mirror in New York in 2022, and Vanishing Apertures at the Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin in 2021.
