“The cosmos has always been a theme that has captured Cuppaidge’s imagination. The binaries of dark and glowing massive and minuscule unified and fragmented, evoke the experience of a starry evening in a sky that never ends. For Cuppaidge such an exhibition history, in the United Sates and Australia is a remarkable achievement for any artist. for Virginia Cuppaidge the buoyancy of her new canvases is a triumph.”
Joan Marter Distinguished Professor of Art History, Rutgers University.
