"I’m an introvert by nature so drawing has always been my alternative to verbal expression. I’m not a very graceful speaker, my conversations are messy, I run in circles with my idea and trip over my words. Unlike my chaotic mind my work is clean, minimal and to the point. It allows me to unload my feelings, and work through the thoughts and emotions and tell my stories. Drawing quiets my, at times, scrambled mind." -- Karolina Adams
Edna Dapo describes this series of miniature scale paintings as "depicting infinite space, and the human condition as infinitesimal within it." Dapo’s work is on a constant search for the answers through the meditative qualities of paint: “Why are we here?,” “Are we alone?,” “How to create a world that is better for us being in it?” She expresses these big ideas onto the tiniest of canvases—miniature cosmos on 5x7 and 6x8 inches.
