Eleanora Kupencow: Body Parts!
A selection of recent paintings, sculptures, and “Fun Seetz” (sculptures for sitting, reclining and climbing). Some of the pieces included in the exhibition are the paintings “Acrobats” depicting active figures seemingly defying gravity, “Noah’s Ark" a multi-piece painting featuring creatures great and small, each living in a little painted cage all their own, and “Diamond in a Square” a large, very bold painting in gold, silver, black and white, among dozens of others. Two very large pieces of Kupencow sculpture will be featured, “The Interfacing Couple” and “The Jitterbugs,” along with18 sculptural “Maquettes” captured in motion and contained in two large plexi-glass cases. The two “Fun Seetz” that will be featured are “Dash Hound” and “Fat Cat.”
Ms. Kupencow’s paintings, intrinsically related to her sculpture in color, form, theme and scale, feature the common elements of joy and movement. Kupencow's sculptures, "Horsing Around the Arrows of Time," were first installed at Dag Hammerskjold Plaza (2008-2009), and then at The Pearl Street Triangle in Dumbo, Brooklyn (2009-2010), and are now permanently installed at The Children's Museum of the East End, in Bridgehampton, NY (2014). Other Kupencow sculptures can be viewed at the LongHouse Preserve gardens in East Hampton, The Romany Kramoris Gallery, in Sag Harbor, NY, and The White Room Gallery, in Bridgehampton, NY. Six of her “Fun Seetz” (sculptures for sitting, reclining and climbing) are permanently installed at a pedestrian plaza on Old Fulton Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
