Angelique Kopacz

I’m a Philadelphia based artist who works in printmaking and book arts. My work explores mental illness and its impact on the human condition. I’m interested in examining the relationship between the mind and body - how they work together or conflict with one another in attempt to remain well.

On Grief

In my zine On Grief I am using marbling techniques and my original text to express feelings on grief and how symptoms can spread outwards from the original victim of these emotions. Comparing these feelings to ripples in the water, I use marbling patterns to relate directly back to these sentiments. The small scale of this one-page book creates an intimacy with the viewer in its pocket-sized form, offering solace whenever needed.
