Dalgis Edelson, Orlando Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement Dalgis Edelson explores beauty and ugliness and the gains and losses of life, in her wonderfully complex oil paintings on regular canvas and wood. She combines a unique poignant style with an a abundance of details,intensely rich colors and complex compositions to bridge the expansiveness of emotive expressionism with the realities of the physical world. Drawing from her deep sense of spirituality, dreams and imaginative wanderings, Edelson creates worlds infused with symbolism and meaning meant to probe the intuitive flow of human experience.
Inspired by Goya, Dali, Kahlo and the old masters, Edelson's images are dedicated to detailed renderings but also surrealistic, as she uses geometric forms to add layers of meaning to her figures. She takes us further into the subconscious realm in the abstract elements of her paintings, which draw on compositional elements of pattern and geometry. Delving into the mysteries of humanity and the universe, Dalgis Edelson uses her art to touch the viewer and lend greater insight into humanity's emotional terrains.
