ABOUT DORIAN & STUDIO 797
Chaos, Mr. Escher
collaged papers & acrylic 12" x 48"
I work, teach and host parties in this space. A dream of a lifetime...and have enjoyed connecting with new artists and the neighborhood along the way.
Currently the studio is closed for events, but, I'm here working and I look forward to the day we can come together again and celebrate life! Soon!
My art work continues to explore the complex and sometimes fragile balance of modern societal growth. The changing visual patterns of progress, whether good or bad, have informed my imagery.
Whether in a rural setting or right here in Herndon, the land, its buildings and the people adapt to the new visual formations as daily progress moves forward, some aspects of the forms becomes obsolete. . Memories of patterns become altered. The balance of the old and new patterns must co-exist.
Memories mixed with the new emerging patterns are explored through paint, printmaking and assemblages. Marks are layered to obliterate or reveal new combinations of patterns shifting the network found in our new societies. My response to change comes with some regret, but, the new ‘footprint’ is inevitable.
