In his solo exhibition Kopler will showcase approx. 20 new large scale colorful abstract works. Kopler opens apertures, windows and gateways that lead the gaze to the heart of his painting, to the soul of things, to the baffling, traumatic and dangerous places. At
the innards of Kopler’s colorfulness and painterly skills lies a terrifying darkness key to comprehending his works. These openings are scattered in all of his paintings where they clearly gather around such subjects as “house,” “tree,” and “window,” along with
other recurring subjects. Kopler follows forking paths seeped with European and Israeli modernist traditions. His paintings have Henri Matisse playing with Joseph Zaritsky and Raffi Lavie, Georges Rouault entertaining Lea Nikel. The interactions and oscillations of central
modernist trends and the personal styles of leading artists produce encounters that come accompanied with gestures directed at the forebears of modernist art. The unfolding painterly conversation requires no translation.
