Dana - Constructive Destructive
With the main theme of her work being human aggression (against human and nature), Dana's process of work is anything but subtle. Working in layers, reflecting the constant regenerations of buildings, cities and cultures, Dana attacks the medium with razors and a blow torch, searing and melting the pieces, creating a distressed urban landscape. Experimenting with different materials, such as printing waste, transparency film, glue, resin, mesh, canvas, paper and wood, Dana is looking for reactions and interactions. Fusion, integration and disintegration, solidification and deterioration - all become expressive tools in her work.
Dana works in NJ. Her works are currently exhibited in the National Academy museum in Manhattan and the Neuberger museum in Purchase, NY.
