Woundkeeper by Lauri Copeman

Lauri Copeman

Over twenty-five years of painting my work has evolved into a style I call Emotional Realism. I paint portraits of people, places and things that mirror inner reality rather than outer. We are not a product of our environment. Our environment is a product of us.

I have spent a considerable amount of time in Mexico -- a place Salvador Dali called "one of the only true surrealist countries." My presence there sparked a series of dreams so powerful I had no choice but to paint them. Mexico altered my perspective of people and the context in which we find ourselves at any given moment. It has made me see that truth is personal, kaleidoscopic and quicksilver.

My task as an artist is to communicate that truth through my images.
