Derek Eller Gallery
Derek Eller Gallery presents White Lies, a show of Despina Stokou’s text-based paintings. Stokou’s primary source material is culled from online public platforms like Twitter where the American political pulse can be seen in its most raw form. The artist uses her paintings as her own physical platform on which to amalgamate the fury and disappointment we encounter on the Internet everyday. Using the medium of paint to both elucidate and obscure this reality, Stokou approaches a challenging subject with a passion and energy to rival that of her source material.
