DescriptionCopperwhite's work focuses on how the human psyche processes infromation, and looks at the mechanisms of how we formulate what is real. With her work, she is fully aware that such realities may only hold validity for an instant, and that we are constantly processing and changing waht we logically hold as an experience and memory.
Layering fragmented sources that range from personal memory to science, from media and internet to personal memory, Copperwhite's canvases become worlds in which the real is unreal and this unreality is in constant state of reforming.
