William Rupnik Gallery is proud to present: An exhibition by Dana Oldfather WE ARE MOUNTAINS April 23 - May 9, 2010 Opening reception 7-10 PM, Friday, April 23, 2010
We Are Mountains, a new solo exhibit by Dana Oldfather, illustrates the weight of one’s natural emotional contradictions through a range of experiences; an accomplished existence can nonetheless be consumed with doubt and uncertainty. Her abstract wonderlands are skillful and balanced while her amoebic figures are on a transcendental journey from past to present. Each thoughtful piece gracefully embodies the revelation of contesting aspirations in an ambiguous arrangement of paths and shapes. Beginning her career as a figurative realist painter, Dana has since loosened her hand and expanded into the realm of abstraction. Contrarily organized and layered, each piece is inspired by nature, culture and resolution. With a focus on innocence, individuality, and consumption, and by employing contrasting metaphorical and magnified pointillist elements, Dana connects to the world through beauty. The Gallery is located at: 1667 East 40 St., Unit 1-A Cleveland, OH 44103
