Dinah Worman Solo Exhibition
Dinah Worman "A Valley View" Oil Triptych 12x36
Dinah Worman brings a freshness to her art born of confidence and a sense of humor. She sees the delight and dignity in the personality of a bovine, the telephone pole’s strength and endurance against majesty of an endlessly blue sky and the graciousness of entering a painting after long stretches of humble grasses and earth. This new solo show at the Act I Gallery makes no excuses and brings the simplest of random structures, piles of farm equipment and makeshift buildings, a wonderment and appreciation. Honoring the mundane pushes the viewer to take another, deeper look at one’s surroundings.
Whether layering on pastel to sanded paper or building up layers of oil on canvas, she is an architect with art materials. Dinah is constantly referring to linear lines within chaos. Repetition brings the melodies back and forth within the artwork as repetition is a core ingredient for an architect, a safety net that underlies the otherwise unsettling confusion. Her inspiration comes from the most unlikely sources. Combining this with her sophistication and excellence as an artist and it is no wonder she was awarded Best of Show for the prestigious Coors Exhibition, an event otherwise known for its traditional work.
