Dragomir Misina’s paintings are an exploration of color, texture, mark making and the process of painting itself. Concerned with the delicate balance of chaos and order, Dragomir’s artworks combine deliberation and chance, functioning as a diagram of layers, marks and colors, creating gateways into make-believe worlds. The starting point of each painting is based on some form of narrative, which inevitably informs the course of painting. His paintings maybe observed for what they are rather than what they should mean. In this sense, Dragomir advocates the true essence behind connecting with a work: take it for what itis and how it feels to you, and not what you think you should be feeling.
