Dana YORK  –  artist  painter

Dana comes from an artistic familly, her mom is an artist painter as well. Since childhood, Dana paints, enjoying drowing and play piano as part of daily rutine life.

She was mentored in the traditional technique of reverse painting on glass and had been exibiting in New York, Monaco, Cannes, London, Jérusalem and Paris

She is a member of the  Salmagundi Art Club in New York and a proud new member of AFCAE.

She studied the history of Ketouba and its representation in the world, specially in  Italy, Germany, Iraq, Iran … she observed the techniques , the formes , the substances.

Ketouba, also called Ketoubot (in aramaic it means « writen document») it is a jewish marriage certificate.

By choosing the medium of glass panel painting, She embraced  the celebrated traditional art of the Ketuba, inspired by the 17th Century School of painting calligraphy and of the illumination of sacred manuscripts.

Dana,s work of art is largely inspired by the Venetian pied-palette of oils and gold gilding. We get surprised by the materials used, then conquered by the colours and forms and images, and finaly by the artists. she sought to incorporate  caligraphy, images, symbols… that might allow these works to resonate with some of the emotional  and intellectual lucidity
of venerated objects.

Dana is now during her blue period. þAfter the New York deep red period , the French Riviera with the Mediteranian Sea and the Blue Sky inspired briliant colors …. pastel light blue, metalique in transparence or emmerald, the passion of the Sunsetoverthe Esterelles…in delight « on est bien à Cannes, it is magic! « ) she sais.

We find in her paintings generosity, abundence, tranquility, love, sex, passion, girlandes of flowers, raimbows, dance of angels, sirens… a tribute to the colors and even a rebuild « broken love »! Her Paintings demand precision and high attention to detail. They are of an exceptional beauty, specific, and each one is an unique exemplary.

Sophisticated compositions are using techniques of folk genius.

Estonishing creative work , so talented and emotionally powerful….

…a new art naiv modern inspirating Love and Peace

The artist lives and works in Cannes (France)
