Dagley is a mid-career abstract painters working with a geometric vocabulary.
Ive followed other artists gratefully and I hope Ive also followed my own path....sometimes along side other artists. Ive also been willing to share any help that I could give to any other artist. I love art and I love the life of art and I only wish that the real life of art could affect social change in a good way and that the invasion of commercialism in art and the invasion of entertainment into all areas of our lives hadnt brought some of the worst features of our culture into the realm of art.
