Brooklyn based Mira Dancy’s bold paintings collate Classicism with advertising culture in order to explore contemporary female issues. Throughout her paintings, Dancy seeks to appropriate the Classic female nude as a contemporary symbol of strength and self-possession.
Taking a feminist approach, Dancy makes powerful, expressive works centered on the female nude. She works primarily on canvas, but has also branched out into wall painting, neon light pieces, projected images, and even shower curtains.
