Dalene Woodward lables her art as both intentional and intuitive. She begins a piece with a color palette or a certain image in mind, and then follows her intuition and imagination, making drips, drags and marks to achieve the final painting. The colors are striking and bold, and the narratives are whimsical and lighthearted. There is a fairytale quality to the work, and a focus on the female character. The women appear strong and confident against their dreamlike backdrops and vibrant patterned outfits. Bright colors and patterns, and artists such as Gustov Klimt and Peter Max inspire Dalene. The black outlines and delicate faces of the women provide a vintage feel. The seated figure in Hotel California is reminiscent of 19th Century depictions of Parisian life, such as the woman drinking in the cafe' in Edgar Degas's L'Absinthe. With a fresh sense of adventure and childlike joy, Dalene captures and reinterprets the romance of modern figurative painting. U-GALLERY
