biography Dornberg was born in Los Angeles in 1940. He and his twin brother have painted since an early age. Dornberg was inspired by Rempel in high school to explore juxtaposition, and by Elgart and Amato at UCLA to paint anything and to do it a lot. Over the last 12 years he has produced over 850 oil paintings (which are displayed at, www.dornberg-impressionism.com). Images of his work appear on websites, in poetry e-zines, in printed publications and on book covers. solo shows February 15, 2005 Gallerie Gora in Montreal June 21, 2005 Bowery Gallery in New York.

These include: relationships of objects, shapes, lines, spaces and colors; their juxtaposition toward the surface and boundaries; their rhythm and balance. Study of these elements takes place whenever a painting is reviewed. It is essential to learn from review and to progress, while remaining free to explore and change. Subjects are chosen from slices of life. While focusing on the elements above, subjects must remain subservient to the elements. See Dornberg's Nudes Paintings at http://www.dornberg-digman.com.
