A look back through the Magazine


For Kim Kopp, MFA’92, time is the essence. She spent two years (2005–07) constructing works like january, grouping individually made 9.5 x 6.5–inch mixed-media paintings to form the months of calendar-year 2005. With 31 panels representing each day of the month, january suggests “the lemon-yellow glow” as the days grow brighter after December’s winter solstice. The dark, solid panels punctuating the grid are not “bad days, as some people think,” Kopp says, but “act as resting places or activating moments in the whole group.” See “On Exhibit.”
