Local artist Dana Beringer’s concept of art as a direct, immediate expression of the artist’s
inner state appeals to the viewer's intuitive approach to her work. These works draw us into a
serene purposeful place almost sacred. Included in this show are works which exude a
dramatization of nature and the sea. Two pieces from her black and white series, her color
series depicting abstract perspectives of city architecture and two from the aerial series are on
view. Her art expands from sketches made sometimes from an aerial view of coastal New
England including Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island and coastal Fairfield County. She
uses bold colors depicting these parcels of land and the water. The technique of building upon
layers with muted color adds texture and depth. Some of her canvases are almost transparent
with sweeping hints of color. Her paintings of seascapes come alive in an abstract expressionist
style. She plays structure against freedom.
Dana Beringer’s art is an improvisational expression of her ideas and emotions. She has
been painting since an early age. She has exhibited and sold in the United States and Europe.
Her work has been photographed and published.
The artist holds a BFA from CUA in Washington D.C.and a Master's in Art Therapy from CNR in
New York. Additional work may be viewed by appointment.
