Breakthrough: Three dimensional paintings

Image of Dancer, two wood cut-outs of a head and body the body has one leg and no arms, painted in dark pink.

Dana Simon’s work is figurative, and her vibrant energetic colors conveys great feeling.  Working with materials like wood, Plexiglas and plaster life casts, she has created a way to break through limits set by the two dimensional form.  Dana Simon has Usher’s Syndrome a progressive condition that affects both her sight and hearing.

”When I painted these works I still had good central vision, I had problems with depth perception and tunnel vision. These works use high contrast colors and large shapes. As I have a progressive condition and my vision has changed my work is always changing.”
