Joseph Bellows Gallery will be participating in ART SAN DIEGO, a contemporary art fair featuring artwork by established and emerging artists from around the world. The gallery is pleased to present the work of Dana Montlack.
Montlack’s work explores the idea of really observing what dwells in nature’s otherwise seemingly small things and attempts to capture and display their essence. After selecting a group of images of her subjects, such as an anemone’s tentacles, a poppy’s stamen, a jacaranda’s seed pods, the artist combines the images in overlays to create a powerful montage. Montlack’s vividly colored, multi-layered images allow the viewer to reflect on exquisite details and mysteries found in nature.
Dana Montlack holds a BFA in sculpture from the University of California at Santa Cruz and an MFA in mixed media from the Otis Parsons College of Arts and Design, Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationwide, including the Museum of Art, Downtown Los Angeles, Alexandria Museum of Art, Alexandria, LA, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY, California Center for the Arts, Escondido, CA, and the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento, Sacramento, CA. Montlack shares her time between Atlanta, Georgia and La Jolla, California.
