Mira Dancy’s new suite of paintings employs abstractions and rich colors as a source for figurative invention. Combining invented perspectives and portraiture, the protagonists manifest as nameless geometric objects or characters offering bewildered stares and defiant postures. The space surrounding the figures is treated as a psychological extension and visual counterpart to the figures themselves – creating a landscape that does not necessarily correspond to our physical world.

In The Night, The Owl (2005), a lone figure centered around mysterious fluorescent abstractions sternly gazes upon a perched owl – which are often recognized in Greek, Roman, and Celtic mythology as symbols of spiritual influence – further conjuring notions of uncertainty, surrealism and psychological depth.

Mira Dancy received a B.A. from Bard College. Her work was recently included in a group exhibition at Schroeder Romero. She currently resides in Brooklyn.
