The idea of perfect proportions found in nature – supported by mathematical principles – has a direct influence on my work.
I am presently working on paintings of buildings along what was once Route 66, presently Central Avenue in Albuquerque, downtown and Nob Hill. Focus is placed on the colorful vintage signs and neon lights of restaurants, businesses, shops and theaters that exemplify the history and character of this place.
Dorothy McGeorge’s paintings have chronicled her surroundings from the open plains of the Midwest in Nebraska, the suburbs of Washington, D.C., the urban cityscapes of Montreal, Quebec, and now the environs of the Southwest in New Mexico.
Dorothy is known for employing Dynamic Symmetry: a classical approach to organizing the picture plane into segments to compel the viewer to share the whole of the image through its parts.
