Kopeikin Gallery presents “ELEGY,” a new series of photographs by Jeffrey Sklan. This will be his first exhibition with the gallery. Using the medium of photography, Jeffrey Sklan presents images of rich beauty and loss. The exhibition features astonishingly detailed photographic images of flowers in tribute to victims and survivors of mass killings and murders. First on view at Photo LA in January, the series draws from the solace the artist finds in the beauty of flowers, the moving poignancy of their all to short existence, and their use in memorials for the departed. Using a rich color palette that originated with his admiration for artists such as Velasquez and Rembrandt, Sklan creates depths to his work that resonate with inner light. The exhibition is designed to be a travelling show.
“Images of great beauty and poignancy are photographic artist Jeffrey Sklan’s call to action against violence and mass shootings. With “Elegy”, he offers a visually stunning exhibition focused on botanical images. This radiant and transformative collection is his way of paying tribute to lives lost in mass killings and murders; but viewers unaware of the context will experience elegant, perfect images of flowers with a rich and deep color palette.” – Genie Davis, Diversions LA
The exhibition will open on Saturday, June 22nd with a reception for the artist from 5:00 – 8:00 pm and continues through June 26th.
