Yvette Coppersmith

Love Lifes - Arrangement in Grey and Yellow with Furby
(Melissa & Simon) 2014

Oil on Linen
117cm x 153cm

Gallery price $ 7,500

Yvette Coppersmith began the Love Lifes series of paintings over the summer months of 2014/15 in her backyard studio. During this time, friends of Coppersmith’s were invited round for BBQ gatherings - bringing with them offerings of garden picked flowers, treasured heirlooms, or objects sourced from their own studios or homes. Guests arranged still lifes in her studio over the course of each gathering, to which Coppersmith would later use as a starting point for paintings.

In recent years Coppersmith has introduced processes of participation and exchange with other artists, ex lovers, couples and friends into her painting practice that expands vernaculars associated with the still life genre. Asking others to contribute to the scheme or at times arrange the still lifes for her, Coppersmith takes an approach akin to her portraiture where her subjects transpose certain sentiments and emotions into her work. This approach to still life is evocative of other Australian figures including Dorrit Black, Grace Cossington Smith and Margret Preston, whose work also delved in to the personal and domestic settings of Australians.
