The light paintings of Anna Coppola
In the current landscape of research in the Visual Arts, the work of the artist Anna Coppola acquires a very particular value, which places it in a morphologically complex context, as works such as the Synapses, which represent the heartbeat of the their research, are situated in an articulated dimension, between sculpture and light painting, with insistent demarcations, overflowing in the field of interior architecture, where these spring works are praised that praise the vital flows, communicating with space. Therefore, Coppola’s works, with their environmental breath, adopt characters that only time will be able to help define in their exact expressive morphology, in which the data of pure scientific research and the flows of the personal history of the artist voluntarily give up putting into play. with all the vigor of his creativity, even elements of his experience.
