Jonah Koppel

Inspired by traditions of improvisation, Jonah Koppel creates dynamic and free paintings as quickly and accurately as possible. The artist uses oil loaded with leaded crystal powder and wax onto a burlap base—a technique drawn from the works of ancient Venetian painters. Koppel combines disparate elements from the imagination to produce cohesive works that deftly play with the mechanics of image-making and visual perception.
