Nova Flores: Paintings by Britt Dalice
March 15 – May 15, 2017
Nichole’s Fine Pastry is pleased to present an exhibit of recent paintings by local artist Britt Dalice.
In this series of oil paintings, entitled Nova Flores, the artist sets stunningly rendered floral subjects against backdrops inspired by the universe. A nova, in astronomical terms, is a new star that manifests a sudden increase in brightness. The fusion that happens as the artist applies the paint to the canvas has the same result as that which occurs during the creation of a nova: dramatic, beautiful and other-worldly.
Like Impressionist painters, Dalice juxtaposes color on the canvas that the eye then fuses at a distance. This produces more intense hues than if the artist were to mix the same colors on the palette. Although employing a long-established painting technique, the artist creates work that is modern and bold.
Dalice works primarily in oil paint, using both the traditional brush and the palette knife to apply paint to the canvas. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the state, including at Grand Forks City Hall. Her paintings may be found in private collections throughout North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and New Mexico. Dalice studied art at Concordia College and Minnesota State University of Moorhead.
