Daphne Minkoff combines painting with imagery photographed during her travels. The images represent small "excerpts of life, a passing glance, a fleeting memory or momentary recollection of a place," and the pairings are focused on how things intersect. Minkoff finds unconventional beauty through disparate elements, and her work is a unique balance of the mundane and poetic, abstract and

realistic, bucolic and gritty.

Daphne Minkoff received her BFA from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, with honors in painting. She has received numerous awards, including the Juror's award from the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, Washington.
