DD Intro

Denise Driscoll’s paintings are expansive accumulations of mark, line and form that often include metallic and iridescent colors that shift and shimmer in changing light. Her painting process is meticulous and meditative, generating unplanned compositions that emerge as each added layer obscures and illuminates what lies below. Driscoll’s interest in inner space, meditation, and mystical experience is fueled by a lifetime of reading magical realism, speculative fiction and folklore. Her paintings are thresholds, liminal spaces that connect the visible world with the unseen. She writes “I hope to create moments of possibility and connection to our own untapped potential, to capture that deep breath taken before jumping into cold water or plunging into the unknown.”
