Mira Dancy’s deployment of mythology and expressive lines puts her wholly in the wet, messy lineage of neo-expressionism—a movement riddled with a history of macho market darlings…

“But under Dancy’s brush, this fluid style gets a necessary jolt of feminism and a dark, gothy charm (closer to OG expressionists James Ensor and George Grosz) that was too often lost in those ’80s pastel swirls and sploogy paint.” — Andrew Berardini
