Snoopy is part of a series of paintings exploring what Sandro Kopp calls "the mediation of presence." Kopp's portraiture is often once-removed from the subject — he'll conduct a sitting via Skype or have a stuffed animal function in lieu of its owner. Deeply personal items imbued with memory and intimate significance, these adolescent objects are rendered with an earnestness and painterly formality that borders on the spiritual. Snoopy is based on a painting of the stuffed animal belonging to Kopp's close school friend.
