Swimming in the silver light of a Midsummer Moon, Madison WI
based painter Kelli Hoppmann captures the dramatic, and emotional pull of the season,
one pristine brushstroke at a time.
Known for her allegorical landscapes with chimeric figure play,
Hoppmann’s latest dreamlike series tempts and provokes ones inner consciousness
like never before. Each piece hosts a beguiling masquerade of characters
interacting al fresco in a theatrical narrative. Depicted in one work a red, ravishing fire
roars over an ocean setting while in another entitled, Untold Histories,
three Jane Austen like maidens hold unspoken secrets never to be muttered. These vividly painted artworks, tripping on
the fantastic is sure to evoke a visceral prodding of the imagination.
