BRENDA NESS-COOPER

Idiosyncratic Expressions
October 14 - November 3, 2016
Reception: Thursday October 20, 2016 6-8 PM

In the process of creating her compelling watercolors, Brooklyn artist Brenda Ness-Cooper transforms interesting subjects and images into striking compositions, so that an ordinary landscape or scenic terrain becomes something quite extraordinary. Each image is reworked several times on watercolor paper before being transferred to Aquabord, a process that enables the artist to capture a unique degree of expressionism in the art, one in which the magical can be found in the real. 

In the end, Ness-Cooper’s paintings are meant to be so much more than just a pretty picture, as she seeks with each image to tell a story and provide the viewer a means of escape from the grind of daily life. She achieves this with a strong use of line combined with vibrant colors and an emphasis on composition and form, all of which add fantastical elements to the overall effect. As Ness-Cooper explains, “My representational paintings create magical places for my viewers to enjoy.”

Brenda Ness-Cooper currently lives and works in Staten Island, New York.
