The 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."

Dahlov "Full Circle" Calendar for 2014

Islandport Press announces a gorgeous new calendar featuring 15 "Circle Paintings" by Dahlov

order from Islandport Press

order from Georgetown Historical Society

Twenty-five years ago, legendary Maine artist Dahlov Ipcar was fascinated by the images she saw looking through a kaleidoscope. The then-71-year-old, who regularly seeks new inspiration for her paintings, set out to bring that same dramatic look to her art. To accomplish her vision, she painted circles within circles, making sure each new layer pulsated with energy, color, and patterns. The result was the breathtaking "Cat Mandala," the first of her so-called "Circle Paintings, which she unveiled in 1988.

Over the following 23 years, she created fourteen more circle paintings, each featuring a different animal theme ranging from the real to the imagined to the fanciful, from Australia to Asia, merry-go-rounds to blue moons. One critic called these paintings "a rich visual feast, an experience full of zest, color, and magical imagery." Islandport Press will feature all fifteen of Ipcar's Circle Paintings in "Dahlov Ipcar Full Circle," a 2014 calendar that offers a remarkable year-long visual treat.
