Koperta 48″x48″ Acrylic on Tile Board with Black Frame, February 2014.

Koperta comes from an original Native American language and is roughly translated to “head”. I feel that it is fitting for this piece of art which is nothing more than a head. When I view this painting it sparks my imagination as to what the body is doing. I wanted this composition to represent that when based on a single facial expression, one can only imagine what an individual is thinking or doing. Liquid Reveled Noise Storm represents being inebriated out of your mind, where the faintest noises can seem like piercing howls causing one to cringe in discomfort. The smoothness of Kopertas face is complemented by her earrings and hat, which in turn makes her expression purely loud. What draws me into this piece the most is the fact that it has a stone-age like appearance. I question whether or not it resembles anyone in the modern world. The simplicity of the colors used in this art piece lets the viewer focus on the complexity of the overall look and finish. The colors used for the face were purely experimental because it was originally red and black, before it was tampered with to display the final composition. Koperta is an exceptionally vibrant piece of my collection.
