ARTIST / MIRA DANCY
Posted on 07 June 2016
Sculptor and painter, Mira Dancy's art frequently takes a shot at extensive scale, filling the confines with far reaching nudes rendered in an energetic cluster of hues and with calligraphic, clearing, twisted lines. Dissimilar to the ladies who show up in much artistic creations, Dancy's female gaze gives way to nudes that are saturated with a feeling of quality and presence of mind, notwithstanding a purposely misrepresented sex appeal.
Taking a women's activist methodology, artist Mira Dancy makes intense, expressive works fixated on the female form. Her love for painting dates back to school, taught by Amy Sillman and Elizabeth Murray, whose own specialty and women's activist ethos laid the ground for her vision.
