Eleanora Kupencow to be Featured at Anderson Contemporary Gallery

In the first solo show since her extraordinary 2011 Italian exhibition at Galerie Pananti in Florence, celebrated sculptor/painter Eleanora Kupencow will be featured at Anderson Contemporary Gallery, 180 Maiden Lane, New York 10038 in lower Manhattan, April 8 - May 1, 2016.

Eleanora Kupencow: Body Parts is presented by Susan Davis Eley and Anderson Contemporary with an opening reception on Friday, April 8, 6-8 p.m. at the gallery (South Street entrance).

The exhibition showcases a selection of Kupencow's recent paintings, sculptures and Fun Seetz (sculpture for sitting, relaxing, climbing). Important paintings in the exhibition are: "Acrobats," depicting a large field of active figures seemingly defying gravity; "Noah's Ark," a majestic, multi-piece painting resplendent with creatures great and small, each inhabiting a little painted cage all its own; and the piercing "Diamond in a Square," prominent in a palette of gold, silver, black, and white. Approximately one dozen shaped canvases will be "on parade" in the gallery hallway, along with a dozen framed works on paper. Kupencow's larger-than life figurative sculptures, "The Interfacing Couple," and "The Jitterbugs," respectively 11' and 10' tall, make a strong presence, along with a wall of 18 of their "maquette" counterparts. The two Fun Seetz on exhibit are "Dash Hound" and "Fat Cat"

Ms. Kupencow's paintings, intrinsically related to her sculpture in color, form, theme and scale, feature the common elements of joy and movement. Kupencow's sculptures, "Horsing Around the Arrows of Time," were first installed at Dag Hammerskjold Plaza (2008-2009), and then at The Pearl Street Triangle in Dumbo, Brooklyn (2009-2010), and are now permanently installed at The Children's Museum of the East End, in Bridgehampton, NY (2014). Other Kupencow sculptures can be viewed at the LongHouse Preserve gardens in East Hampton, The Romany Kramoris Gallery, in Sag Harbor, NY, and The White Room Gallery, in Bridgehampton, NY. Six of her "Fun Seetz" (sculptures for sitting, reclining and climbing) are permanently installed at a pedestrian plaza on Old Fulton Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
