Facebook Sale to FUND Future ART!!!

Hi Everyone! 

I'll be posting artwork on a Facebook Event open to the public that I'm selling at super duper discounted prices! (We're talking around 40% off!) I've been working lately on art in more areas of my life from looking at my visual arts in a higher context and setting my sights a little higher for future art shows and exhibits to also exploring dance more fully and deeply. AND trying to fuse my love for dance and printmaking together... 

With all these new ideas I'm preparing to not only create new work and collaborate with a fellow artist BUT also continue my dance studies in the cities AND go to Tribal Fest in May to take workshops with some amazing teachers. In this continuation of art and to fund my upcoming ventures I could definitely use some help.... AND I want you all to get something out of it besides happy feels. :) 

The artwork listed will be art that I intend to no longer show or retire so here is kind of your last chance!!!! All of the money for the art would be going towards these artistic ventures. If you'd like to know more about what i'm up to or purchase one (or more) of these pieces contact me through Facebook, phone: 763-213-6029 or via email at alexpoepping@live.com THANKS! ♥ ♥ ♥

Show at Kopplin's Coffee in St. Paul!

Hey Everyone!

I'll be showing my most recent collection at Kopplin's Coffee in St. Paul from July 1st - August 17th. Please stop by the reception July 18th 6-8pm!

A taste of what is to come...

An extension of my most recent collection exploring esotericism, this collection, entitled Residual, digs even deeper, delving into the objects of ritual and spirituality and in doing so, the people who use them. I seek now not only to create esoteric icons but to produce evidence of ritual and the occult. Combining scientific, spiritual, nostalgic and architectural imagery, these relics will draw the curiosity of the viewer while excluding them from their true meaning and origins.  Shifting between figural, abstract and still life representations, all of the compositions seek to alienate the viewer from the exact use while giving just enough clues to rouse suspicion.

By portraying the artworks as relics I attempt to show ownership, past use and reverence while not revealing the exact importance. Spotlighting the touch of the past owner or ritual overseer I draw inspiration from spiritual architecture, Indian classical dance, catholic relics and the treatment of objects with historical significance.
