Robischon Gallery, one of the best art galleries in Denver, has presented a new solo exhibition of the prominent American artist Deborah Dancy. Titled “A Faint Light,” it is a dynamic two-part art show featuring Dancy’s iconic large-scale abstractions in oil and works on paper, along with a gorgeous selection of provocative figurative and mixed-media artworks. The exhibition is on view at the gallery through June 26, 2021.
Deborah Dancy’s “A Faint Light” at Robischon Gallery
“A Faint Light” – the second solo exhibition of Deborah Dancy with Robischon Gallery – explores the nuanced and fragile space between suggested and defined structures. The exhibition is presented in two parts: Dancy’s signature abstract works on canvas and paper and her ongoing provocative series of collage pieces and figurative artworks.
Deborah Dancy’s abstract paintings ignite the imagination with the artist’s uncommon use of color and the gravitas and grit of her brushwork. Filled with fragmented and incomplete shapes floating and colliding with one another in an ambiguous space, they offer the viewer to find the meaning through the obfuscated and illuminated forms that seem to exist somewhere between potential despair and hope. Such an unexpected use of narrative, colors, and shapes makes Dancy’s abstractions truly captivating, calling attention to her potent contemporary voice once again.
“Oblivion,” the second part of Deborah Dancy’s “A Faint Light” exhibition, features nine mixed-media figurative drawings and eight redressed porcelain period figurines. Each work is unapologetically political and pointed. Using humor and critique, the artist altered them to offer a more accurate depiction of what they represent, revealing their true meaning.
“A Faint Light” runs at Robischon Gallery through June 26, 2021, so be sure to visit the show while it is still on view. For more information about the gallery and Deborah Dancy’s solo exhibition, please click here.
