WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING...

Art New England, July/August 2015
“Connecticut Studio Visit” by Susan Rand Brown

 

“Dilenschneider has found her Argenteuil and her Giverny in documenting the tidal waters, hidden streams, golden sedges and groves of narrow, angular birches surrounding her studio…. Up close, these peaceful landscapes jitterbug with the joie de vivre of American abstract expressionism.”

 

 

B-ALL Magazine, June–August 2015
“Jan Dilenschneider: Enchanted Nature” by Micha Christos

 

“In her studio on Long Island Sound in Connecticut, she plunges into the void of her white canvas with a joyful and liberating energy. Solar woman, her energy springs spontaneously on the canvas, burning, irrepressible in mighty waves, and transcribes her joys as well as her fears.”

“Nature at Its Most Melodically Colorful” by Bertrand De Saint Vincent

 

“Dilenschneider expresses her artistic sensibility unhampered by the trends and tyrannies of the art market. She wields her brush with wild passion and tremulous elation, bringing trees, flowers, grass and reeds to calm, majestic life…. The luminous Dilenschneider has placed landscapes side by side in what may or may not be diptychs – the viewer is free to decide. Indeed, freedom is the very theme that the artist has chosen to explore in her Paris exhibition following the January attacks.“

“Jan Dilenschneider: Freedom of Expression” by Béatrice Delamotte

 

“Dilenschneider avoids figuration and abstraction, instead painting highly charged landscapes with strong lines and bold, sometimes clashing colors. But the result is so harmonious that viewers want nothing more than to lose themselves in the contemplation of the glorious nature before them, and to make sure that it remains just as stunning for generations to come.”

“Expressionist Jan Dilenschneider at Bellarmine” by Susan Dunne

 

“Jan Dilenschneider said she doesn’t create diptychs. She works in ‘dualities.’ The painter who lives in Darien has a unique artistic process that helps her maintain the energy of her thoughts. ‘I paint two at the same time,’ Dilenschneider said. ‘When I look at both together, they feel like they're moving.’”

“Profile: 'Dualities' Color Work of Darien Artist” by Brian D. Wallace

 

“Dilenschneider’s paintings have earned praise for their almost numinous color that reveals the ordinary landscape as excited by natural light. She has the unique ability to capture quiet, almost imperceptible movement—a mild breeze vibrating beach grass or the undulations of still water as it gathers reflections and colors.”
