Remembering a specific moment in time with all the precise details is difficult. But we can always remember a sense of that time, the essence of a special moment – the feeling that the memory itself matters. The physical event will change, particular memories will fail, but the significance of a moment persists.
Choperena elevates the moment. In his own words, he captures ephemeral events by initiating a “lateral pass” with an open shutter. The blurred effect mimics the ordinary mechanical apprehension of indiscriminate physical vision. His camera lens translates light into digital signals, capturing the tiniest clues of color, value, and texture – a single conclusion, one image, one movement and one moment.
All of Choperena’s primary symbolic frames – the swirling disc, the chromatic band, the field of color, open a window on the soul. For this body of work Choperena focuses on the “beautiful fine line between two worlds.” His interest in contrast and conflict….the ways in which objects and events struggle, blur and merge are his reoccurring theme. These interventions undeniably transform the physical fundamentals of time and space into a beautiful subjective force. The edge of difference, in his mind is a metaphorical horizon into the sublime.

“This exhibition spans the years 2009 to the present, and represents my evolving interest in fragmentation and the dissolution of the whole into singular, independent parts. The idea arose as I visited ancient ruins in Italy,Turkey, Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. As well as these ancient sites, I find the demolition sites that I pass en route to my studio to be fascinating. Some of the paintings are loosely based on photographs of these sites. In my mind, there is a connection between these construction sites and the ancient ruins I love to visit. Both exist in a dreamlike space, neither here nor there, but in between.
In addition, my influences include Italian Baroque ceiling paintings, the preserved fragments of Roman fresco,Italian mosaics, pixilation, and process painting.
These diverse influences hold in common the themes of fragmentation and transition. The question is whether these fragments are nostalgic reminders of the past, or the beginnings of a new form. The answer is never clear, and is always interesting to me.”

Innovative International Jewelry
July 30th – August 31st
Private Opening: Tuesday, July 29th, 6:30pm
It is surprising to realize the incredible variety of objects that can fit under the term “contemporary jewelry”. This movement has developed in different countries around the world manifesting itself in diverse practices. The word jewelry itself is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicized from the old french “jouel”, and beyond that the Latin word “jocale”, meaning “plaything”.
For many centuries, metal combined with gemstones has been the norm for jewelry. Today there are an incredible variety of objects that suit the term “contemporary jewelry”. We use the word contemporary because it represents the perfect balance between innovation and personal expression in reference to the present. Contemporary jewelry is a self reflexive practice, meaning it is concerned with reflecting on itself and the conditions and environment in which it takes place. In general, it is created in a critical and conscious relationship to the history of the practice and to the wider field of jewelry and adornment.
Cross Current is showcasing the works of 25 of the most innovative international contemporary artists of our time. Through the convergence of their modern creations and heritage, they invite us to travel through history and redefine our own idea of jewelry.
