An artist mainly working in painting and drawing, Dana Blickensderfer is also the founder of Provoke Art and the co-founder of iBoss Advertising. Based between New York and Tampa (Florida), Blickensderfer draws her inspiration from her personal biography relating to her family legacy: the Blickensderfers. Her most recent series of oil paintings are constructed images portraying the actual typewriter the Blickensderfer from the 1900s. She intertwines images from the actual object, the original advertising and posters of the era creating a kaleidoscope of colors; shifting between figuration and gestural abstraction. There is a dialogue constructed between the history of the typewriter and the history of advertising while relating it to her own biography. Blickensderfer becomes the bridge between the past and the present, the private and the public, the personal and the universal.
In 2014, Blickensderfer was the recipient of the Milton and Sally Avery Scholarship Award to study at the New York Studio School. In 2013, she was a finalist of the Olympics Art Competition in Orlando (Florida) and part of the Celebration of the Arts Exhibition curated by the Bay Area Museums directors in Tampa. Most recently, Blickensderfer was selected as the featured artist in the Panach Vue Magazine, February Edition.
Latest NYC Artist Review – “Dana Blickensderfer’s new body of paintings Flight of the Machine invites the viewer to discover and reassess ideas of communication. By utilizing the turn of the twentieth century typewriter engineering in her paintings, she reflects on the subject of time passing and while de-contextualizing the mechanical object and putting it into contemporary settings, she is revealing herself. It is through the search of her personal identity that she transfers the meaning of the machine as her intimate universe. The subject is dismantled and re-invested and it is through colors and textures that she is exploring the animated, the masculine, the feminine, the organic, and the man-made.”
