In Deborah Dancy’s work there is an undercurrent of nuance and tension, as if something is poised to happen. Paintings and drawings are constructed by tangential linear demarcations and erasures; abutting shapes and colors are inserted to provoke and entice, yet disrupt.
Dancy’s paintings, drawings, artist books, photography and sculptural objects examine and mine abstraction’s potential to move across mediums and materials exploring subtlety and confrontation. She is a Guggenheim Fellow and Professor Emeritus at the University of Connecticut.
Dancy’s solo exhibition in the 3rd Floor Gallery at Marketview Arts in downtown York (37 W Philadelphia St, York, PA 17401) runs from January 17 – March 14, 2020. She will be speaking about her work at Marketview Arts on March 12 at 5:30PM in the 3rd Floor Gallery Hall. Dancy will also serve as the Fine Art Juror for York College’s 2020 Annual Juried Student Exhibition.
