Dagmar Wankowski’s lithe acrylic paintings reach out to touch the timeless — to make the viewer, in the painter’s own words, “forget the everyday issues that distract from the beauty of surrounding nature.” Wankowski creates intelligent, intricate abstract work in which paint blossoms and pools like water, deep and strong one instant and barely there the next. Her compositions seem to grow organically, without a single center or direction but with one color building upon another. And it is with her colors that the artist creates a specific, grounded evocation of nature.
