Dana Dion

Dana’s abstract landscapes are influenced by her connections to the geographies of Israel, Africa, Canada, England and Australia. Luscious and evocative, her paintings explore both the physical landscape and an inner landscape. She uses a personal language driven by the experience of travel, change and connecting to a place.

I take experiences out in nature back to my studio and paint large. I use a lot of paint. I make a mess. I am very physical when I work, moving energetically. I allow the movement to initiate rhythms. I capture the energy by painting quickly. Intuition and boldness drive the work. Accidents along the way make for spontaneity and improvisation.

Art for me is the excitement of creation in a relatively unstructured way. Painting and drawing frees me to express, think, push boundaries, learn, explore… I can let go—there is no need to conform. It is my creation, not what is expected of me from others.

Dana has dedicated herself to painting full-time since 2005, applying to each work the discipline of her lifetime of living in different countries. She lives and works in Greenwich. She has participated in numerous selected group and mixed exhibitions and has received many prizes and awards.
