Springtime Divine! Impressionist paintings by Dena Tollefson
May 18-May 28
Witness the exuberant, joyful art by Dena Tollefson, dedicated to the wonders of nature that God has created. Her skies swirl with spiritual energy, her flowers swoon with personality and life. Denas body of work utilizes a unique technique she developed, where daubs of individually mixed oil paint are applied with a palette knife. Self-described as Daubism, all of Denas paintings are created using a palette knife where each stroke of color is isolated from the others. The largest marks are applied with a serving spoon, allowing ridges of paint which catch the light and appear to dance and scintillate as the viewer moves past the painting. Most paintings will have hundreds of different colors these colors are all individually hand-mixed from a limited palette, resulting in unique colors which relate to one another because of the limited palette. She is always striving for a sensual, tactile surface in paint that calls attention to the glory of life.
