Dorothy Grostern, You Know
Mixed Media on Paper, 41" x 29", 2012
Please join me today at Escape Into Life, where I've posted a new Artist Watch feature. I'm delighted to feature the emotionally expressive, provocative, and sometimes haunting work of Dorothy Grostern, who is based in Montreal. A member of the Society of Canadian Artists who exhibits internationally, Dorothy has been a professional artist for more than 25 years and works in pastels and charcoals, as well as oils, and also produces prints (etchings and monotypes) and sculptures.
At Artist Watch, you'll find images of Dorothy's ongoing series of narrative works on paper that use text from her personal journals (view more Journal Drawings), an Artist Statement, and a biographical profile, which are followed by links to galleries that represent her work.
Dorothy also is the author of a 173-page graphic novel, My House Has Many Rooms (image below), which includes images of her painting and drawings and handwritten text from her journals.
