BEAUTY: Art--Adrienne Dagg

Adrienne Dagg works in a figurative paradigm but there is something so lovely and almost otherworldly about her use of paint. Her style is intense and lively. Just look at those delicious colors, all yummy and present, like cake frosting. Yet she does not let the medium overwhelm the image. She says in her mission statement, "As I paint I let my materials show their tactility while working to keep these mediums from overcoming and dominating the image. Like the mark making of the early impressionists, my work is a balancing act between maintaining a loose hand and keeping the marks laid down controlled and deliberate."
