Russo Lee Gallery is pleased to present Selected Works, featuring paintings by Michael Dailey, from the estate and private collections. For decades Dailey pursued a vision where light and color intersect in abstracted compositions suggestive of a luminous landscape. Atmospheric and experiential, the paintings of Michael Dailey continue to invite imaginative contemplation.
Dailey was respected throughout the Northwest for his subtle, abstract interpretations of sea, land, and sky, alluding to atmosphere and light through delicate variations of color. While he was especially known for his large paintings on canvas, a foundation of his work always could be seen in his smaller-scale works on paper. The work quietly asserts tranquil and meditative qualities that are created out of a sophisticated use of color and line. His luminous and subtle creations are like no other.
