Swinging, a series of paintings completed in early 2019, demonstrates Dina’s mastery of color and her intuitive sense of form. Initiated as a simple exercise to work through fluctuating moods, the series developed a heart and soul as Dina was able to release emotions she had been fostering by manipulating a particular color at a time. As a result, each work is imbued with a unique feeling, inviting viewers to freely project their own interpretations. Aesthetically, the works are reminiscent of childhood visions; spinning around wildly in a circle, or watching scenery fly past your vision on a highway. Taken as a whole, Swinging maneuvers the ups and downs we all feel on a daily basis as part of the human experience.
