As an abstract artist Karin Dahl works to enrich the meaning of each painting. By adding jazz she provides another layer of meaning. Music guides the viewer to linger, to look closely and consider sound and color together.
Dahl’s oil paintings are explorations of color. Her works are painted in layers to convey an idea or mood. She uses color, contrasts and connecting gestural lines to unify her compositions. Sgraffito lines are considered a signature element. These scraped lines reveal underlying colors and build texture.
Dahl’s background is in academia. She is an Emeritus Professor at the Ohio State University and has worked internationally in Uzbekistan and Thailand on critical thinking training. Dahl’s Ph. D. is from Indiana University in Language Studies. Her art background includes more than a decade of private teachers as well as coursework at Denison University.
Dahl’s art has been exhibited in solo shows, and regional juried competitions and can be found in regional collections. She had two solo exhibitions titled Art and Jazz in 2021 and 2022.
