Dana Crossan
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: Dana Crossan is a painter's painter. Her non-representational abstractions are an emotional reflection of her everyday experiences. Crossan works in a layering process that consists of acrylic paint, oil pastels and charcoal. The layers are just as important as the final product. Layer after layer Crossan paints and writes thoughts about her anxieties that are around her physically or in dreams. The end result is hidden within the layers and what you see is the blurred image of faces and influences of the people who played a role in that particular concept. Crossan’s ultimate intention is to keep art made by the artist’s hand thriving in a world where technology and money have taken over. The work stays true to her inner dialogue over time, allowing us to see an undisclosed fraction of our infinite responses to the complex world around us. She wants to bring back the life of a true non-representational artist and to prove that the “wow factor” of art isn't just about the idea but also the talent of bringing the idea itself to life.
