About

In Dana Oldfathers original abstract artworks, fantasy and obligation charge and bind domestic environments, giving memories a new expression. Dana Oldfather celebrates the process of painting and the oddity of human experience with a focus on femininity and motherhood. Color and form create joyful moments. Frenetic marks remind us of the effort and strain it takes to bring those moments about. Paint veils, drips, and splashes add tension and a supernatural aura as the paintings shudder with a pulsing energy. This 34 inch high by 42 inch wide unique horizontal artwork is painted on raw linen. Dana Oldfather uses a variety of mixed media to evoke dreamy landscapes. The artwork is signed by the artist on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery and free professional installation is included, including placement and hardware. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included with this unique work. Much of Oldfather's work depicts restless bodies at play which entwine and pile up in dreamy, hallucinogenic landscapes. The figures’ limbs are clumsy and awkward as they poke out of the pile in an attempt to assert autonomy. Wet into wet oil marks tie these forms together. The figures are propped up by each other but they imprison each other too. In these scenes, happiness comes at a price. Airbrushed acrylic objects and symbols provide information about mood, add formal noise, and blend space. As she puts it, “I use anxious mark making to mirror a rushing world distorted by apprehension. These paintings underscore the inherent emotional conflict of parenting young children, and the fragility of comfort and happiness in America today.” Dana Oldfather has exhibited in galleries and museums and has a strong foundation of collectors internationally. She has been awarded the William and Dorothy Yeck Award for Young Painters, the Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award, as well as residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and Zygote Press. Her work has been twice featured in the New York Times, and published in the book The Art of Spray by Lori Zimmer of Art Nerd New York. Her work can be found in many public and corporate collections in the United States, including the Pizzuti Collection, Eaton Corporations, MGM International, The Cleveland Clinic, and the prestigious Progressive Art Collection.
