Living in Taos, New Mexico gives artist Dinah Worman a constant source of imagery to fill her canvases. After years of painting pastels successfully, she shifted direction in a straight line to oils creating landscapes with a unique view. Dinah Worman designs a landscape that is abstract, stark, seemingly flattened out on the canvas dotted with benign white-faced cows all alone in trapezoidal fields. A modern view, derived strictly Dinah says from a subconscious level.
Dinah’s conceptual view is rooted in reality but as she says, “…more me – the vision moves forward pushing boundaries traveling constantly. My interpretation is more important to me than the object itself.” About the Artist
Dinah's landscape paintings are instantly recognizable for their clarity and depth. Light is everywhere. It filters through the trees and streams, between the clouds. She is able to retain this vitality because she is continually renewing her vision. “I work to press beyond method and into a flow of creative instinct; using pastel, oil, acrylic or printmaking to express myself with unusual compositions and expanding vision. Dinah’s work ranges from representational to imaginative variations taken from a creative viewpoint of man and his relationship to the landscape.
Dinah has earned the designation of Master Pastelist from the Pastel Society of America. She has been featured in articles in several newspapers, magazines including Southwest Art, The Pastel Journal and The Artists Magazine as well as having a public installation chosen for display in Taos, NM.
Home and studio are in Taos NM.
