    • Diana Copperwhite (b.1969) Plato's Stage (2020)
      Apr. 18, 2023

      Diana Copperwhite (b.1969) Plato's Stage (2020)

      Est: €7,000 - €9,000

      Diana Copperwhite (b.1969) Plato's Stage (2020) acrylic and watercolour on Fabriano paper signed and dated 'Diana Copperwhite 2020' lower right h:102  w:135.70 cm. Provenance: Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin (label verso) where purchased by the present owner A vivid and energetic essay in abstraction, Plato's Stage employs several different approaches to painting, ranging from Gerhard Richter-style combing and striation of paint, to dripping and flowing liquid pigment, as well as conventional brushwork. Copperwhite's range of subject matter is equally diverse. While sometimes the idea for a painting will be based on a media image, it is likely that, in the final work, any hint of the original image will have disappeared. The title of this painting alludes to Plato's well-known critique of how humans perceive reality, when he pointed out that such perception has as much 'truth' as when a prisoner in a cave might see shadows cast on a wall. Born in Patrickswell, County Limerick, Copperwhite is now based in Dublin. She graduated from NCAD in 1994, after studying at the Limerick School of Art. This was followed by her being awarded an MA at Winchester School of Art in 2000, in a course held in Barcelona. An accomplished painter, who draws on her own experiences as well as images from the media, Copperwhite creates semi-abstract, or abstract, works of art. They defy easy description, although elements of Expressionism abound. Music is a good analogy, and indeed many of her works are created using that same mixture of logic and intuition that a composer might employ in the creation of a work. In the 1999 EV+A exhibition held at Limerick City Gallery, Copperwhite pushed the boundaries of what constitute materials for painting even further, using clear resin and aluminium sheet in addition to oil on canvas, She has had over twelve solo shows, including several at the Kevin Kavanagh Gallery and in 2012 was awarded a residency fellowship at the Josef Albers Foundation in New Haven, Connecticut. Two years later, An Post used her painting Patterned Behaviour as a postage stamp, celebrating Irish contemporary art. Copperwhite is without doubt one of the most accomplished contemporary painters working in Ireland today.

      Diana Copperwhite (b.1969) Interior oil on board signed verso h:65  w:74 cm. Provenance: Private Collection Diana Copperwhite is one of Ireland's most acclaimed contemporary painters. There is often an architectonic quality to the pictorial spaces she maps out, with their evocations of modernist interiors. From the first she has used a distinctive, high-keyed palette usually including yellows, oranges, greens and blues, deployed with fast, tremendously tactile flair. She has exhibited widely including, with great success, in the United States.

      Diana Copperwhite (b.1969) Disappearing Into 1 (2015)

      Est: €1,000 - €1,500

      Diana Copperwhite (b.1969) Disappearing Into 1 (2015) oil on canvas signed, titled and dated verso h:30.75  w:25.50 cm. Provenance: Private Collection One of the most highly regarded painters of her generation, Diana Copperwhite has consistently returned to the image of the human head. Where le Brocquy's head studies are concerned with "an archaeology of the spirit", you could say that Copperwhite's heads, just as specific and characterful, and beautifully painted, are at home in an era of social media, digital technology and image overload. Each head painting embodies an individual as a repository of memories, dreams and interconnections, dynamically poised between past and future.
