David Kupferman Lyric Abstract Artist
My lyric abstract paintings are celebrations of the mystery, magnitude and dynamism of life, an expression of the infinite flow of light and the expansion of inner consciousness thru free flowing color, movement and geometric compositions.

Kupferman’s work combines spontaneous, gestural imagery with geometric abstract shapes of color and linear patterns that weave a tapestry of flowing images in a unique fusion of Eastern and Western styles. He paints while listening to classical Indian music, Vedic chants or some improvisational jazz which helps move the flow of energy where you can feel the rhythms, pulse and vibrating waves of sound expressed in paint. They relate particularly to Indian Ragamala paintings, Persian miniatures, Japanese and Chinese Zen screens and Western Cubism and abstract paintings. Some are more landscape-seascape oriented inspired by his summers on Cape Cod as well as the expansive Iowa skies called Light Waves and Sea Psalms with sublime atmospheric vibrations of unbounded lighted skies and eternally flowing waves that create a holistic visceral experience. His work is available in Iowa, Boston, and several other locations.
