Julie Oppermann

(lifePR) (Köln, ) Galerie Stefan Röpke is pleased to present its first solo exhibition of works by Julie Oppermann, on view September 7 to October 12, 2012.

Julie Oppermann's recent series of paintings explore the contemporary idea of interference in relation to how information is disseminated, transmitted, and ultimately perceived, using painted moiré patterns created by overlapping multiple layers of nearly identical line patterns. Drawing from her background in Neuroscience, interest in perception and cognition, and study in Color Theory, her brightly colored, scintillating paintings recall the psychedelic, while maintaining a strong conceptual rigor. Oppermann's systematic and rule-based process is matched by her impulsive and intuitive approach, resulting in uncanny, often unsettling decisions that set up compelling tensions within the work. The exhibition will present works ranging from very large paintings on canvas to medium sized works on aluminum and monoprints on paper highlighting Oppermann's investigation of materials within her particular process.

Julie Oppermann lives and works in New York. Just this year, she completed two residency programs; Residência Artística, FAAP, São Paulo Brasil and the Spring Semester Exchange Scholarship, Universität der Künste, Berlin, Germany and receives her M.F.A. in Painting from Hunter College, New York.

The first weekend of the exhibition will coincide with the DC Open Weekend 2012, and the artist will be present for the opening preview on September 7, 2012, 6:00-10:00 pm.
