Dana Frostick

Dana Frostick's mixed media work is a combination of drawing and painting. Her goal is to allow the artwork to control its eventual outcome. Frostick wants to embrace her human mark - its perfect imperfection. Technological devices are too predictable and perfect, filtering out much of the information and the randomness that is available. Software doesn't allow for the appearance of chance as it uses predetermined responses to mathematical equations. For Frostick, the raw and immediate line she gets from hand drawing and painting is a more attuned expression of the patterns and ideas that make up our human history. Her process of creation involves coaxing order out of chaos and represents the battle between fate and chance.
