I am honored to be the American woman in this internationally focused 4 person show.


There is no unifying theory of painting. Manifestos, if they still exist, are not what they used to be. Nor are assemblies or encounters with strangers. Surveys of 'capital p' PAINTING suggest that color is important nowadays. Tropics are topical. Monochromes are not monolithic end-alls. A rainbow of monochromes is on the receding née approaching horizon. Domestic themes are in but domesticity, per se, is out. Is it nostalgia? Is it about travel? What do signs say and how are they colored? What do colors say - how do they signify? And what about books?

No matter. 2017. Here we are: two Americans and two Austrians; all of us who make paintings;all of us who use color; brought together by one of us who makes books.


Curated by Markus Kircher, this exhibition will feature recent work by Daniel Domig, Markus Kircher, Suzy Kopf, and Champneys Taylor. The show will present four different takes on painting. Painting as a medium of freedom and concentration shows itself from its variable and curious side; from figuration to abstraction.

OPENING RECEPTION JANUARY 17, 7:30pm. Please RSVP to attend the reception here: http://acfdc.org/upcoming-events/2017/2/18/exhibition-different-dimensions-one-artlove

Austrian Cultural Forum 3524 International Ct NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20008.

Show runs until February 17.

The Gaps Between Us
to Sep 1

The Gaps Between Us

  • Ortega y Gasset Projects (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A painting group show featuring the work of myself, Damon Arhos, Sarah Clough Chambers and Kirk Daniel Palmer will open on August 21st and run through September 1st.

An opening reception will be held from 6 to 8pm at Ortega y Gasset Projects in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

Ortega y Gasset Projects is pleased to host The Gaps Between Us, an exhibition of work by MICA Low-Residency MFA candidates Damon Arhos, Sarah Clough Chambers, Suzy Kopf, and Kirk Daniel Palmer. The exhibition runs from Friday, August 21 to Sunday August 30. There will be a reception for the artists on Friday, August 21, 6-8pm. The exhibition will be open for viewing on Saturdays and Sundays 1-6pm or by appointment.

Working from traditions of painting, the artists in this show use the formats of painting to explore a diverse range of themes related to contemporary American culture. These include leisure culture, personal histories, queer identity, and the nature of perception. A unifying theme of the work is the relationship to traditional approaches to painting, while simultaneously pushing the limits if the medium's scale and material presence. Perhaps most importantly, personal friendship unifies this group of individuals, each of whom occupies a different age bracket and each of whom have a unique biography. Their identity as a group speaks to the potential for visual art to diminish separateness and create new paths of communication among individuals who are otherwise quite different from one another.

The MICA Low-Residency program is an unconventional course of study for the MFA degree. In place of the traditional two-year program, Low-Residency convenes over four summer sessions at the MICA campus in Baltimore, MD. For the remainder of the year, students have the option to live and maintain a studio practice elsewhere. This model attracts students from diverse geographical locations and cultural backgrounds, and often with expertise in other fields.

This exhibition is curated by Ortega y Gasset member Eric Hibit.
For more information, please contact Eric Hibit at erichibit@gmail.com or Suzy Kopf at studio@suzykopf.com
