From the Artdose Artist Directory: Sandra Cipollone

“Dominion” by Sandra Cippollone

We are happy to feature one of our artists from our artist directory. 

Sandra Cipollone writes, “I am taking source imagery from found antique photographs. My intention is not to exactly copy the images, which seems a little redundant, but to interpret them through inventive color schemes and brushwork. Photos of strangers in the past remind me of the cognitive dissonance I feel when looking at my own family photographs. Our family tree is a bit complicated, and even something as innocent as looking at our archives opens up emotional minefields. I’m not interested in nostalgia per se, because that is a (often literally) white-washed view of history. I want to leave the uncomfortable truths intact. By painting in an unnatural palette, I’m trying to share that feeling with the viewer.”

Sandra Cipollone grew up in Waukesha and Nashotah, Wisconsin. She received her BFA from UW-Madison in 1996, and currently lives in Milwaukee. Her paintings and prints have shown in Madison, Milwaukee, and Austin, Texas. She participated in the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network’s Mentor program, where she was mentored by Della Wells. She won an Honorable Mention for her painting ​Anonymous Iconic​ at the 2018 Wisconsin Artists Biennial.
