MEYECELIUM New paintings by Sandro Kopp
Meyecelium is an exhibition of the new works by Sandro Kopp. The portrait of one of the eyes of a friend or relative of the artist, realized during the last two and a half years of their life, held by precious metals - gold, silver, platinum - which further ennobles with the traditions related to the creation of images from ancient Egypt, to the Byzantine icons, to the golden mosaics of Torcello and San Marco. Our eyes are great recipients of information, but also powerful communicators of our personality and emotion. These are the most important things about our presence and our problems with other people. The paintings were made in many different places around the world: in Kopp's studio, as in hotels and cafes, in parks and gardens. The different settings can be captured by observing the reflection in the irises, which are often a tiny self-portrait of the painter's silhouette and the surrounding environment. The title of the exhibition alludes to the network of organically cultivated relationships and friendships that surround each individual. Kopp is half German and half New Zealand based in the Scottish Highlands.
