Dana de Kalb
Under the radar.
"In my work I present curious, open-ended narratives that explore the unexpected and exotic in seemingly familiar situations. Using odd props and visual non-sequitors, the subjects apply themselves earnestly to improbable tasks with devotion and good humor, despite a certain discomfort. There is the suggestion of a parable or morality tale in progress but with the lesson left unstated. My intention is that the viewer will become as absorbed in the characters as they are in their tasks, and that perhaps some preconceptions will be gently teased along the way."—Dana de Kalb was born in 1958 in Indonesia. She graduated as Cum Laude in 1979 from the Pomona College, Claremont, CA, BA degree in Studio Art.
