Dana O'Malley is a visual artist based in Wilmington, NC. O'Malley's work investigates the fissures of our cultural landscape defined by the tender and harmful binaries that we individually, and collectively, inhabit and sow. In her paintings, the glow of technology defines and melts the negative space between humans, figures, flora, and text. O'Malley hopes to ignite necessary discussions of womanhood, emotional wealth, eco-anxiety, millennial desperation, power, and body politics through the unnecessary, magical means of plastic and oil paint on substrate. She holds an M.F.A in Painting from the University of Iowa (2016) and a B.F.A in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design (2009). She has shown work in art galleries and hallways throughout the United States.
