Mira Dancy: 16 Artists to Watch in 2016

Article: 16 Artists to Watch in 2016


I first saw Dancy’s work in 2013 at Kansas Gallery in New York City. Having graduated from Columbia’s MFA program in 2009, Dancy is a solid member of the new generation of figurative painters, many of whom are quickly gaining attention. She focuses on the female body with a vengeance. It is almost as if she is trying to wrest it from the hands of the mostly male cast of artists who have laid claim to it over the years. In the past few years her compositional sense has gotten ever more sophisticated. I am excited to see how she grows.
