Sausalito - Dana Draper Copper Figure Figurative Artist

San Francisco Bay Area Dana Draper Copper Figure Figurative Artist


Welcome to the site of the resident Sausalito Artist Dana Draper presenting Aqualine Figurative Scroll Paintings.

."Aqualine" conveys the meaning of waterline and fluidity. "Scroll Paintings" can be of any length or width, framed or unframed. The undraped figures that Draper paints are devoid of politics, pretentions, and material possessions. Therefore, expression, feeling, motion, color, and relationship come into play as the primary visual and emotional factors. His Sausalito studio is on the San Francisco Bay, located near the Golden Gate Bridge.

Dana is one of the few talented artists who have crafted the skill of this "Unique Form" in a modern and western fashion. These works can add to the decor of any room, and fill that typical narrow, and long wall void over a window, arch or doorway.

Much sought-after and hard to find, this form is painted in a traditional style with excellent detail. It is then framed, like any normal painting. Because each is an original creation, no two are exactly alike. This painting is a true treasure and a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition.

He is a founding member of SITE inc. of New York. He specializes in long format paintings and site specific projects involving copper. He and his wife Ingrid Butler share a studio in the Industrial Center Building, in beautiful Sausalito. Dana offers his works of art as originals, and prints.

Copper is painted with formulated acids to produce natural patinas that etch into the metal. I enjoy working with warm copper colors and seek dimensional possibilities for interior installations.
