The Painting Center is pleased to present an exhibition of recent paintings by Lois Dickson.

About

Lois makes her paintings in response to images that emerge from her imagination. A painting can evolve using spontaneous sweeping and interlocking gestures. As images appear on her canvas, and colors ask to be present, the process of working and solving the painting begins. The result is a conflagration of images that are simultaneously imaginative and engineered, deliberate and accidental. She is very influenced by the work of early European abstract painters and by the Americans: Marsden Hartley and, especially, Arthur Dove. She states: “I continue to be interested primarily in the fundamentals of picture making: form, space, color. With this recent body of work, I am also opening the door to surprise narratives. While I always hope to invite something “dark”, I find humorous personalities taking up residence. I think I’ll let them stay for now.”
