Yvette Coppersmith- Incu Art Windows

Incu Art Windows have curated an epic curated spread featuring a stunning 6 panel work by Yvette Coppersmith entitled Forever in Blue Jeans. Her model and muse is Melbourne based curator Mark Feary. Feary is presented here as a kind of specimen or even spectacle in a glass box for the world to inspect and dissect. Coppersmith refers to the work as a kind of homage to the power of desire at work between artist and muse, as an element of sublimation. 

Yvette Coppersmith is an incredibly accomplished young painter whose work has won a number of prizes including the inaugural Metro Art Award and has been a finalist in a number of major competitions including the Archibald Prize (finalist with portraits of Paul Capsis and John Safran), Stan and Maureen Duke Gold Coast Art Prize, Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and more.  For more information about Yvette Coppersmith please click here

Yvette Coppersmith studied painting at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2001 and has since presented seven solo shows in Sydney and Melbourne. She is represented by Chalk Horse, Sydney.
