Historical Context:
Elaine Dalcher has earned a reputation over the last twenty-five years for creating bold and colorful oil paintings. Dalcher's subjects offer the viewer vivid images from a close-up perspective. Whether it is a still life depicting a space in her home or studio, or a landscape with a tree standing as a figure against the sky, she renders subjects in a way that is at once honest, fresh, intimate, and familiar. Dalcher received her M.F.A. from Western Michigan University in 1988 and is represented in public, corporate and private collections throughout the United States and abroad.
