Tara Kopp
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I paint miniature objects from still-lifes and my imagination. They are specific enough to depict what they represent, yet ambiguous enough to portray a universality of existence. The objects I depict in my paintings evoke idealized versions of various social institutions. The miniatures come with a set of social rules and regulations. They represent the way things are supposed to be; they model the American dream. This dream contrasts with the literal reality of the mundane tasks and emotions embodied by the subjects of my work. I am interested in how the miniature objects are created to mimic our lives. The paintings become glimpses of a scene or fragments of a narrative. Similar to a memory, they are fictional constructions of specific moments.
