Abstract Landscape Painting
Anna Dvorak is a Minnesota native who divides her time between Minneapolis and Colorado. She received a BA in art from the University of St Catherine in St. Paul, MN, and continued her studies at the Art Students League in New York City.
Anna Dvorak moves regularly between the land of northern prairies and the plains of the western high desert, crossing back and forth through the grasslands of the middle west. Guided by what exists in the spirit of place, her work responds in lyric softness to the geological, environmental and political history of landscape, aware of the tumult and force that lies beneath the surface, then and now. Dvorak’s language is color and movement, inspired by the grief of western sunsets and the melancholy of broad vistas. Her story is a visual narrative of the land, living somewhere between memory, dream and future. In Western Grasslands, sky mirrors earth in a land where the physical experience of place is suspended in the horizon of the spirit, held sacred by our collective memory.
