Cleveland artist Dana Oldfather’s website HERE.

Her blog can be found HERE.


These abstracts celebrate motion while examining the transitory nature of comfort, power, and security. Hand painted bubbles innocently float about either morphing into cute shapes or being annihilated by something hard and sharp; objects overtake one another. Abstracted kites whirl over, under, and through the evanescence. The scene is a dance and a battle as contrasting lines and forms converge. I am drawn to the combination of sweet and dangerous. What is created is a bio-mechanical environment and organism as one; something that has no beginning or end, like static, underlying current.
