Artist Information for Brigitte Kopp
I work in two different styles - abstract and pictoral and in series.
On Her Road To...64x61 inch
This work is dedicated to all women who have to deplore losses, whether the loss of their home, livelihood or even their relatives.
A Mother's Cry59,5 x 59,5 inch
Should not "Mother Earth" cry about all the destructions when humans wreak havoc? This cry is about all the destructions in Palmyra (Syria).
Why are you angry?47x37 inch
From the Series 'Gestures'. I'm fascinated in the facial expressions of human faces. Each individual has his own way to express themselves, but even with all the differences in gesture, we can always understand.
Soft Overcome81 x 77 x 1,5 inch
I got the inspiration to this work while watching a film showing lava flowing over steel beams. The fascination that a soft material is able to prevail over something hard could be thought philosophically; for example: to overcome hardness with gentleness or to overcome despotism with a soft revolution as it happens in Germany.
Babylon - we are all sisters and brothers69 x 71 x 61 inch
Based on the Bible story of Babylon I want to point out with this installation that we once had been all brothers and sisters having spoken the same language. The text on the quilt on the floor says in different languages "we are all sisters and brothers".
