World Of Dahlov Ipcar
"I find it hard to explain my art, but then it doesn't really need explanation.
It may seem mysterious or challenging, but all you need to do is to open your
heart to the joy and excitement of a new visual experience, to accept a new
vision of a world full of the unusual, a world of the creative imagination."

Paintings & Soft SculpturesDahlov's
love of animals has persisted throughout the years. She has always
depicted her subjects in somewhat stylized and imaginative form rather
than realistically in a photographic sense. She is not interested
in realism as such: but she does base her workon actual animals, enhancing
their forms to bring out the desired artistic effects, often rendering
the backgrounds in a modified cubistic style. Dahlov has painted
in oil from the age of sixteen, but did not start creating her soft
sculptures until around 1945. Her soft sculptured animals are unique
in conception. She was among the first in this century to develop
soft sculpture as a fine art form.
