A Glitch in the Membrane Virtual Walkthrough

New Abstract Paintings By Deborah Dancy
April 12, 2022

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is thrilled to announce the first solo exhibition of recent abstract paintings by Deborah Dancy. The works in “A Glitch in the Membrane” expand on the specific visual language and the creative/destructive process that is the hallmark of Dancy’s practice. 


For Dancy, painting is a constant building and tearing down as she paints and then scrapes paint away. A form will, as she says, “assert itself” and then require an answer via another shape, color, or movement, which in turn creates yet a new question. As the conversation of gestures continues, the transparency of Dancy’s decision-making, her embrace of accident and surprise infuses the paintings with a touching vulnerability.
