Robin Perry Dana’s Watershed series explores the lush colors, organic forms, and primordial layers she finds in wetland habitats. Through the medium of photography, she emphasizes the strange beauty and wild grandeur of these isolated places. Her abstracted and decontextualized compositional strategies result in images full of chaos and mystery.
Dana, a native of Georgia, resides in St Petersburg, Florida where she serves as Gallery Director of Articles Art Gallery and Curator of its satellite gallery devoted to special exhibition projects, The Leslie Curran Gallery. She earned a BA in Studio Art from Agnes Scott College in Atlanta and an MFA in Photography from the University of Connecticut. She has exhibited her work up and down the east coast, taught photography in the US and abroad, curated art exhibitions, written on contemporary artists, and worked in book and magazine publishing.
