Jean Sforza Dalziel

Jean Dalziel was raised in Cleveland where, as a child, she began taking classes at the Cleveland Art Institute. There she studied with Hodermarsky, Paul and Jean Ullens, and William Jean. In 1968 she received a BFA from Ohio University.
Dalziel works with acrylic, pastel, watercolor, and ink. She is a plein air artist who paints the scenery near her northern Ohio home. In 1999 she received an art residency at the Vermont Studio Center where she studied with Wolf Kahn. She has also studied with Charles Basham. Her work has been exhibited throughout northeastern Ohio.

 

 

The use of bold brushwork and rich color simultaneously describe an ongoing interest in creative landscape and fragmented form.
The dynamics of the painted surface, patterns of light and color, as well as recognizable images are used to create an altered reality. Obscuring details in favor of atmosphere and energy result in an attempt to integrate personal and formal concerns.
The reaction of color against itself and with contrasting and similar colors, abstract composition within the constraints of literal interpretation…these are primary concerns.
The result is an attempt to preserve painting as a rich medium of discourse, to communicate and to remain open to individual interpretation.
