The Artist Says:

It is the quality of the light that inspires me as it falls on form and reveals color. My work reflects my fascination with the organic and with capturing a moment in time, most often in a story of light and shadow. The process of painting is a joy and the challenge of expressing life experiences on a two dimensional surface keeps me focused and seeking to excel.  To that end, I often pursue a particular subject or technical tract with something like obsession. For example, I recently created a body of work done exclusively with palette knife, exploring possibilities with this tool that I have often used but never before restricted myself to. It was a delightful experiment that will enhance my work far into the future. These palette knife paintings are currently showing at Rijks Gallery in Crested Butte CO in a show entitled "The Power of the Palette Knife" through May 1, 2018.


Marin Dobson Resumewww.marindobson.com303-638-4323 [email protected] Dobson is an artist who has won awards and national recognition for her distinctive oil paintings.Her oil paintings have been selected for prestigious national shows around the country including New York, NY, San Francisco and Carmel CA, Scottsdale AZ, Santa Fe and Taos, NM, Hilton Head NC, . Some of these juried shows include the Oil Painters of America National and Regional Shows, the American Women Artists National Shows, the Society of Master Impressionists International Show, the Museum of Contemporary Masters and Greenhouse Gallery International Shows, the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe National Show, the Allied Artists of America National Show and the Audubon Artists National Shows. Marin's trademark oil paintings display a luminous color quality and poetic forms. Her paintings transcend the physical scenes depicted on canvas and evoke emotion through the bold use of color, texture, and composition.  Her work describes lyrical forms and patterns of light in a painterly style that reflect the influences of her Russian impressionist training and her study of classical painting technique. 
              “I am passionate about the process of painting, manipulating colors, values, temperatures and edges to create impressions and the                    atmospheric effects that I love. I use a variety of brushes, a collection of palette knives, and even my fingers to achieve expressive                        surface textures and explore favorite themes. Whether the intention of my paintings is to depict drama and movement or a sense of                  serenity and peace, I strive for truth in strong compositions that extend an invitation to the viewer."
Marin Dobson is represented by Sheldon Fine Art, Newport RI, Spa Fine Art Gallery, Saratoga Springs, NY, Stoneheart [...]
