Dana James was born in New York City, where she is currently based.

Graduating from the School of Visual Arts in 2008, James has since had her paintings featured in numerous solo, two-person, and group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. James has had solo shows at Hollis Taggart Contemporary, New York; Bode Projects, Berlin; and The Lodge Gallery, New York. Her 2017 solo show Sometimes Seen Dreams was selected as a featured exhibit for the Art Critical Review Panel discussion series.

“My paintings act as panorama of linear time; they serve as a reminder that we are small and predictable, incessantly creating and shedding beautiful accounts of the earth and its elements,” the artist shares. “Upon completion, they are visual diaries that speak to contradiction, a latency caromed by intermittent activity.” 

In 2020, Daily Collector featured James in the article “Top 20 Artists Shaping the New Decade.” James’s artwork has also been featured or reviewed in Artforum, New York Magazine, The Brooklyn Rail, and Hyperallergic, among others.

Her paintings are held in many private and public collections, including UBS Art Collection and Gibson & Dunn. James is represented by Hollis Taggart Contemporary in New York and Bode Projects in Berlin.
