Dinah Cross James


The Essence of Abstraction
March 4 - March 25, 2014
Reception: Thursday March 6, 2014 6-8 PM

Press Release

The colorful and luminous figurative and abstract expressionist paintings of American artist Dinah Cross James are laden with meaning and infused with great hope. Working primarily in oils on canvas, Cross James utilizes a variety of tools to move the paint around in new ways, including feathers, combs, and kitchen tools. Each image is thick with paint and vividly colorful, with a strong sense of composition that adds an intense emotional component to the overall effect.

Many of Cross James’ recent works are inspired by trips to India, where she collected books on Indian miniatures and then transposed those miniatures into large abstracts. But mostly her work is driven by a great desire to transmute the power of creativity into a healing force, both for herself and those who come across her paintings. As she explains, “My journey and my art are the same… Every day on the journey brings a new experience filled with challenges and fulfillments. Even in great pain and loss I found that beauty will surface if you allow it.”
