Dana Pasila

In my paintings, graphic forms combine with opaque or transparent colour and calibrated tonalities to create shifts between foreground and background, and between sensations of space both distant and close. Building on tactile surfaces of layered paint, visual structures as forms of thought appear suspended or set further in motion by the generative processes of painting.

Through the creation of rya weavings and small loom weavings by hand, a visual focal point springs to life using colour and geometric pattern. Made with wool, linen, silk, hemp, and cotton in both saturated colours and tonal shifts, my aim is to create a discourse between painting and contemporary woven forms.
