Dana enjoys showing these moments that connect animals to each other and to their environment, expressing the unspoken bond that is often overlooked by most humans.

Dana Aldis

Gallup, New Mexico

“I am, what one model once quipped, an overly educated artist,” jokes artist Dana Aldis. Her creative practice is grounded in a strong foundation in academic arts. Dana’s training is apparent in the very fine execution of detail seen in her work, plus her consideration of subject matter. “I pay attention to the implied symbolism in the imagery I choose,” Dana says. Moths, which are featured in her “30 September Moths” series, hold symbolic meaning across multiple cultures. Each moth is rendered against a delicately painted background. Dana draws inspiration for her patterns from art books and fabric shops.

Hi Carl, thanks for the question about my Moth Series. The series started when I joined a 30 day art challenge, and I decided to keep the artwork size small (6x6) so I could complete the artwork in the specific time crunch. It is also a size that I work with a lot. thanks again, Dana

Ms. Aldis, I admire your moth paintings but wonder why so small? Did you do them larger in the past and they didn't sell?; or did you decide to do them 6 x 6 from the get-go? Just curious.
