About Deborah Dancy

Painter and printmaker Deborah Dancy has stated that her paintings are about “color, surprise, absurdity and encounters with the self.” To that end, the artist has devoted much of her career to exploring the ways in which abstraction can become concrete. Her thick, color-filled strokes create fragmented bursts that challenge the spatial construction of the frame and the visual space in which they exist. Her compositions launch a dialogue between representation and abstraction that Dancy is invested in stripping bare.

American, b. 1949, Alabama, based in Hartford, Connecticut
