Artist : Rose Datoc Dall
The work of Rose Datoc Dall is distinctive. Her use of color and sharp graphic forms and line are instantaneously recognizable. What makes her pieces so marvelous, however, is how she employs those characteristics to create a powerful sense of movement and power. Billowing, flowing fabrics and energy generated by strong light and shadow are hallmarks of her religious and secular works. Yet the images are always soft, often tender, and deeply touching. A resident of Northern Virginia, she’s also found time to raise four children and periodically shares her talent by teaching workshops and lectures to eager students.
