Maria Coppola

My paintings speak of the accumulation of life experiences. The multi-faceted nature of
that which is beautiful but sad, is evidenced by heavily textured surfaces with repeated
scrapings, layers and metallic pigments. The surfaces draw the viewer to the mystery of
what is hidden and to the artist’s internal reflections. Radiant pigments counterbalance
the rough textural terrain of the emotional landscape. They afford glimpses of
lightness, mystery and joy.
