CONSTANCE EDWARDS SCOPELITIS***
Constance Edwards Scopelitis graduated with a fine arts degree from Indiana University. She continued her studies with legendary American figurative painter Isabel Bishop. Further studies at the Art Students League in NYC set Constance on a career path of executing large-scaled narrative figure paintings. She has been awarded national and international fellowships, the most recent being the Creative Renewal Fellowship through the Lilly Foundation. She is also regularly exhibited in national and international art fairs.
Scopelitis’ break-out work in Digital Art Media allows viewers to witness interactive video programs as well as digital animation. Interactive gaming programs allow the viewer to alter the artwork directly on touchscreens and her video projects include digitally placed 2D animations based on narratives of social justice issues. D/Railed Magazine, in conjunction with the 2017 Art on Paper NY exhibition stated, “Scopelitis Digital Art media stood out for allowing visitors to interact with her artwork to reveal a vibrant new universe...beneath humanist compositions. Scopelitis’ work exudes creativity and innovation while absorbing and re-contextualizing the artist’s traditional figure painting roots”.
Scopelitis was selected as a Time-Based finalist for ArtPrize8 and exhibited 10 works in the Cornell Art Museum in Delray, FL, 2018-19. The Greater Lafayette Art Museum will host a Solo Exhibition of Scopelitis’ monumental drawings in 2021.
