EXPRESSIONIST COLORIST HEALING ARTIST
Dorothy Fagan knew she would be an artist in the second grade, when the nuns encouraged her to copy a picture of the Virgin Mary on the chalkboard. As a young mother, she won recognition for her abstract pastels at Pastel Society of America, Pastel Society of Canada, Copley Society, and the National Arts Club in New York.
But when an assailant's knife threatened her life, Dorothy lost her ability to paint her delicate abstract pastel landscapes. Inexpressible emotions screamed in silence, catapulting her on an incredible healing art journey. Releasing emotions into strokes of pure pigment, she discovered the reality of heart and soul in the flow of colors..
On an artist residency in France, Dorothy found new direction for her artistry. Juxtaposing ancient man-made structures with her landscapes, she began exploring the relationship between human and divine in paintings and writings. Realigning her palette with the chakras, she discovered her true artistry as a portal for the Light.
Studying painting and music as a child, Dorothy completed her B.F.A. in Printmaking and Painting at East Carolina University in 1974. In a ten-year American Masters Painting Mentorship from 1979 - 89, Robert Bowers Mayo guided Dorothy to look inside herself for inspiration.
Fagan's art stands apart in international exhibitions most recently at DressME at MADS Gallery in Milan, Italy, HerStory 2020-2021 at Manhattan Arts International , and Art Ideal, at Circle Foundation, France, and in permanent collections of Musee de La Grande Vigne, Dinan, France; U Mass. Memorial Research Center, City University of New York, and Longwood University Art Museum, and numerous corporate and private collections.
