Abstract Expressionism, popular in Western art since the 1940’s and 50’s, is characterized by its bold, intuitive mark-making and its free-form spatial composition. The style is developed by breaking expectations of traditional “technique”, leaning into color and the character of its materials to evoke raw energy and emotion. Across her expansive career as a working artist, Dorothy Fagan has transcribed canvases with inner and outer landscapes, folding viewers into expressionistic fields of color. Transforming interiors from home spaces to healthcare facilities, Fagan’s work is a healing balm to be felt and experienced. She is an Abstract Expressionist to the core.
