This event has ended.

The Lodge Gallery and DAVID&SCHWEITZER Contemporary present Sometimes Seen Dreams, a one-person exhibition of paintings by Dana James.

“In her most recent suite of mixed media paintings, Dana James employs alluringly deliquescent strata of oils, inks, dyes, encaustic and pigments in the creation of landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes and spacescapes that whisk you away into the turbid beyonds of ambiguously horizoned, chromatically enchanted elsewheres. […]

These fresh and assertive paintings are James’s strongest work to date, and they are arresting and transporting all at once. If colors dream, this might be what they dream. Perhaps James sometimes sees these dreams.”

- Excerpt from Paul D’Agostino’s essay in exhibition catalogue.

Dana James currently works in Bushwick, Brooklyn. A daughter of artists, James graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2008 and has since then exhibited extensively both in and out of New York. James has had solo exhibitions at Envoy Enterprises (New York, NY), JAG Modern (Philadelphia, PA), and Union Gallery (New York, NY). Upcoming one-person exhibitions include shows at Silence is Accurate (Cape Town, South Africa), and DAVID&SCHWEITZER Contemporary (Brooklyn, NY).
