KELSEY DZINTARS ART

BOZEMAN – Big Sky artist Kelsey Dzintars is now showing archival fine art prints of her paintings through mid-November at the Daily Coffee Bar on Rouse in Bozeman.

During the next year, Dzintars plans to travel the Western U.S. to develop her current body of work, and will serve as artist-in-residence at Arizona’s Chiricahua National Monument in December. Proceeds from print sales will fund her artwork supplies.

Inspired by natural beauty and soul-invigorating experiences, Dzintars’ paintings are “unapologetic and

emotionally stirring, full of movement and surprises,” according to a Big Sky Sotheby’s International Real Estate blog reviewing local artists.

Working with oil, acrylic and watercolor Dzintars has developed her own brand of modern expressionism, ranging from straightforward to whimsical, to graphic-novel inspired. She periodically participates in both group and solo exhibits throughout the Gallatin Valley, and teaches beginner acrylic painting classes.

The artist will explore the cycle of influence between earth and humans by painting the emotional power in landscapes and wildlife.

“The invigorating sensations we emote when in the physical presence of these life forms evoke the desire to honor and conserve, and I hope to share that sentiment through my paintings,” Dzintars said.

“The way in which the paint behaves and the act of painting itself is a reflection of our morphing ecosystem and the human attempt to have control in its progression.”

Dzintars plans to do field sketches in ink and watercolor, keep a public online journal, and expand these studies into larger acrylic pieces. These paintings will add to her growing body of work exploring these eco-psychological ideas in South Dakota’s Badlands National Park and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
