Beneath the Surface
A Collection of Abstract Watercolors
Dan Dressler will be exhibiting at the Newton Free Library. Works will be on display and for sale from February 2nd - 27th. The Reception will take place on February 5th from 7-8:30pm. Refreshments will be served.
Beneath the Surface filters raw emotion into visual expressions that are abstract in nature, providing the viewer with a subjective experience.
Reflecting on the human condition this collection of paintings focuses inward, beyond the calm physical exterior. Layers of translucent color, tonality and hard edged imagery work together to establish figure ground and spatial ambiguity. Interconnecting and overlapping forms generate implied visual movement, providing organized pathways for the viewer to consume painted forms.
Dressler describes his creative process as an ongoing conversation where one mark informs the next. Working extemporaneously, he attempts to maintain his focus on the edge of awareness where emotion and cognition collide.
