Irish, b. 1969

In her paintings, Diana Copperwhite explores the relationship between colors, gestures, figuration, and representation, harmonizing different visual strategies on the canvas. Copperwhite, who is based in Dublin, amalgamates images from the internet, photographs, and real life, unifying these sources in paintings that critically assess the medium’s ability to represent images, sensations, and ideas. “Painting is so physical but has the potential to do something very different to other media. . . . I think that aspects of technology are almost hypnotic and trance-like and this creates a space in my paintings that gives rise to what you might consider the psychedelic,” Copperwhite has said.
