Dale Kennington's unique realist works present "snapshots" of everyday life that force viewers to examine these events in new and interesting ways. Her paintings appear to capture moments in time, but in fact Kennington combines multiple events to create imagined worlds and lives. This style reflects the artist's belief that it is the everyday rituals that define what makes us human and provide structure to society.
