Over the last two decades, Danila Rumold’s work has evolved from oil painting to mixed media paintings. In this new paradigm, Rumold is playing with chance and intention in the everyday, mixing local foraged materials with wet and dry art media, to arrive at various configurations and fleeting constellations.
In previous works, Rumold’s work was rooted in the formal concerns of painting and the elements of line, color and texture without hierarchical relations. Selective exhibitions representative of this earlier style include, the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA, SFMOMA Artist Gallery, San Francisco, CA and the Painting Center, New York, NY.
Rumold received her MFA in Painting at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA (2001). She was artist-in-residence at the Vermont Studio Center residency program, for which she received a stipend to attend (2010). She also has ten years of experience teaching art at Seattle University, in Seattle, Washington, nine years as adjunct and the tenth as full-time lecturer.
Rumold’s work is held in several private collections, including that of New York artist, Julian Lethbridge, as well as in public collections including the Bank of America and Seattle University. Rumold exhibits her work nationally and is currently represented by the Gallery IMA, in Seattle and Exhibit/208 in Albuquerque.
