Denise Choppin

Denise Choppin creates works of art to invoke the power and beauty she finds in the natural world. Rather than attempt to recreate faithful representations of the objects or scenes that inspire her, she focuses upon evoking their essential emotional content. Recent works explore the dynamic tension between representation and abstraction to capture this evocative essence.

Denise began art study when she was six years old, and has been making art in one form or another ever since. Her formal training includes a BA from Eckerd College, and a MFA from Florida State University, as well as independent studies at a printmaking studio in Florence, Italy.

With the Landscape/Horizon series I attempt to convey the emotional experience of light over time and terrain…with the sense of tranquility and hopefulness that light suggests. I repeatedly build up a surface with acrylic glazing, periodically scraping back to reveal older layers.

“The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon. We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
