Work by K. Daphnae Koop

K. Daphnae Koop ‘79 is exhibiting From Broken to Beautiful at the Susan Hensel Gallery.

From Broken to Beautiful is a body of mixed-media work that reflects Koop's interest in “used or abused materials... It is an expression both of the life and beauty that exists in the ordinary, and of notions of reclamation and rebirth.” The show is made up of Koop's intricate painted wood pieces, constructed using recycled materials and recombining them into carved wall hangings that also act as a canvas for painted ornamentation.

Koop is a mixed-media artist from Minneapolis and is one-half of Follow the Muse Studio. The exhibit, which is available online, is on view through June 15.
