Eveline Luppi, Pink Maestro's Lines. Acrylic on canvas. 24 x 24 in.

Years of exploration with paint have led Eveline Luppi’s journey to create work that is technically challenging and visually inspiring to the viewer. Her work draws from the tradition of the Russian Constructivist Movement and Dutch Neoplasticism; her vocabulary is based on geometric techniques, where memory and experience are rendered as deeply structured space, full of passionate transitions and juxtapositions. The use of color is central to her work, evoking emotional states and bringing the viewer to a unified perception of the symbolic content.

Eveline Luppi, Sparrow's Lines on 34th St. Acrylic on canvas. 20 x 20 in.

Luppi was strongly influenced by the Dutch painter Mondrian: she was drawn to his painting Broadway Boogie Woogie with its rhythmic movements, colorful geometric forms, and overall structure. Its great title—referencing a lively dance on an energetic street in the center of Manhattan.

The artist’s dynamic is all about structure and form. It relates to architecture and design, drawing from history and from elements of today's multi-media world. Luppi employs the methodology of constructivism, utilizing both hard-edged and soft-edged line-work—sometimes alone, sometimes in tandem—to create works that readily relate to each other while awakening different sensitivities in the viewer. Her work is inspired by universal experiences: childhood, as evident in her colorful structural Treehouse paintings; the deep emotional spirit and psyche explored in the stark black and white Construction/Structure series; the meditative, reflective state evoked by the patterns and rhythms of her monochromatic White Sands Revisited.

Eveline Luppi, Grey Has Spoken. Acrylic on canvas. 12 x 12 in.

Eveline Luppi’s work is both highly emotional and emblematic of the complexities of contemporary life. She is committed to self-discovery and makes her personal narrative accessible to the viewer.

Luppi is exhibiting in two galleries this month. In New York, her work is on view in Lichtundfire's Covert-19, Part 1, The Quantum Paradox exhibition. In her hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, Luppi is exhibiting as part of the 2020 Fall Members' Art Show at the Providence Art Club.
