White Sands Revisited – 2016
Eveline Luppi employs the repetition of structure, design, and pattern in her monochromatic
paintings. Working with an extremely limited palette, the artist skillfully blends white with the
selected colors to reveal a subtle gradation of color that flows effortlessly from light to dark. Luppi’s
minimalist approach, coupled with architectural and geometric abstraction, results in paintings that
evoke a calm, Zen-like feeling in the viewer.
White Sands Revisited evolved from an earlier series she created for a solo show in the artist colony
in Provincetown, MA. The works are a reflection of Luppi’s visits to the Atlantic shoreline of Cape
Cod, specifically the dunes and beaches of Provincetown and the National Seashore. They are
reminiscent of the subtle repetitive patterns and markings she observed in the white sands while
walking seaside and of peaceful, meditative times spent on the beaches.
The influences of Russian Constructivism and Dutch Neoplasticism are evident in the White Sands
Revisited paintings. The elements of modern design that Luppi expertly incorporates into the works
makes them equally appealing to designers and collectors.
