About Dana

Dana Oldfather was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1978. She is a self taught but draws inspiration from her favorite artists: Willem de Kooning, Reed Danziger, and Yoshimoto Nara.

These abstract paintings celebrate motion, while examining the transitory nature of comfort, power, and security, she says. ‘Hand painted bubbles innocently float about either morphing into shapes or being annihilated by something hard and sharp. Objects overtake one another.’

Oldfather’s work has been exhited in galleries and museums across the country, including POV Evolving Gallery in LA, and The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown. Her dinnerware designs were featured in the New York Times and she was awarded a residency at the Vermont Studio Center.
