Kelli Hoppmann creates allegorical tableaux that are both captivating and haunting. Her images of fantastical characters amidst vibrant and intricate patterns suggest a hidden meaning. A deeper look will reveal satire and social commentary layered within the beautiful imagery.
Kelli Hoppmann is a working Wisconsin artist educated at UW Madison, and has been exhibiting in the Midwest for the past 20 years.
She has also been active in creating “found space” exhibits in the Madison, Wisconsin area with the art group Artbite. She collaborated in mounting an art book show featuring 30 US artists; it was chosen as one of the five best events in the Madison Book Festival, by the Wisconsin State Journal.
The Museum of Wisconsin Art On The Lake is now part of the Milwaukee Museum Mile, a collaboration of five museums along Lake Michigan, on Milwaukee’s historic East Side. In addition to the Museum of Wisconsin Art On The Lake, visitors on the Milwaukee Museum Mile can also visit North Point Lighthouse, the Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, and the Charles Allis Art Museum.
