Dana's bold, large-scale artworks sample literature, Modern Art, street art, and German neo-expressionism. These mixed media works, often populated by a motley crew and cast of characters, tell stories, stories of the disaffected, the marginalized, and the voiceless, stories of Dana's own. She grapples with the dichotomies and contradictions embedded in contemporary Western culture, religion, and humanity, using forceful iconography and a highly expressive technique. Her work and confessional visual language, inspired and influenced by confessional artists Louise Bourgeois and Tracey Emin, grows from her fascination with, and empathy for, the constant existential duel between the isolated individual and the shared awareness of the group.
Avoiding sentimentality, the work of Dana Louise Kirkpatrick seeks to establish an intimate connection with viewers while engaging them with the unrestricted exploration of universal emotions.
Dana lives and works between New York City and Los Angeles.
