Constance Culpepper will present her exhibition entitled, What is Old is New, in the Fireside Room, September 12 - October 8.
Culpepper's collective work is a study in domesticity and the commonalities of personal experience. She depicts heavily patterned interior scenes with vibrantly colored objects that she uses as a framework for conveying emotion. “The rooms I create are portraits of me, my family, my friends. Reenvisioning my surroundings, I intertwine household belongings with saved and found objects, never meant to look new or cherished, to craft a narrative about domestic life, its inhabitants, and the role of women in this domain,” she says of her interiors.
With her most recent work, she was preoccupied with the concepts of reuse and recycling - be it material possessions, relationships, or past experiences being relived or repeated in a slightly altered fashion.
The public is invited to the reception to marvel at the work of Constance Culpepper on September 12, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
