s Artist Statement – Dana McClure


Artist Statement

The focus of my work is on developing a visual language that results from a subconscious response to informed decision making. My process often begins with a strict set of rules or parameters to guide the work. These limitations could be based on materials, scale, color or a specific type of imagery that suggests a certain narrative. From here, I work to deconstruct, transform and challenge this original structure through the process of collage, painting, printmaking and digital manipulation. Utilizing these mediums in an intuitive and responsive way, leads to new discoveries and endless variations in form. With these methods that allow for an immediate and instinctive reaction to each phase of the process, I’m interested in finding the space between abstraction and representation. My work aims to create tension between the two rather than polarizing each.
