ABOUT DORIAN & STUDIO 797
I work, teach and host parties in this space. A dream of a lifetime...and have enjoyed connecting with new artists and the neighbors along the way.
Currently the studio is closed for events. I am here and working. I look forward to the day we can come together again and celebrate life!
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 grid.
As times moves on, some aspects of the form becomes obsolete. The network of geometric patterns are broken up and the people must accept the change. Memories of patterns become altered. The balance of the old and new patterns must exist in new formats.
Memories mixed with 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.
