Dudley Zopp was born in Kentucky and now divides her time between studios in Maine and New York. She is a painter of geologically-based abstractions and an installation artist, with a strong interest in environmental and collaborative projects. She engages mediums and forms from large-scale installations to intimate works on paper with equal passion, and her process synthesizes a fascination with geological formations with an obsession for locating image through the act of painting. Ms. Zopp began drawing at an early age, and has studied languages as well as art.
Ms. Zopp has exhibited widely at galleries, universities and museums in New England and the Midwest. Solo exhibitions include erosions, geologics & terrains at Coleman Burke Gallery, New York; Walking in Time, an installation at Waterfall Arts in Belfast, Maine; and Erratic Locations, an installation at the University of Southern Maine, Lewiston-Auburn. Her work is held in public and private collections internationally including the Boston Athenaeum, University of Chicago Library, and the Farnsworth Art Museum.
In 2011, Ms. Zopp will travel to Spain for a residency at the Can Serrat Centro de Actividades Artisticas in El Bruc. In 2010, she was a presenter at Cultural Summit: A Gathering of Maine Arts Leaders, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts (Deer Isle) and has been named an Individual Artist Fellow by the Maine Arts Commission.
