'Who Am I Now?' is Dillon’s first London solo exhibition. His paintings span a range of psychological landscapes, Kubrickian liminal spaces, and on a darker Pop Art tangent, giant recreations of specific comic-book panels that reference the artist personally.

About

Who Am I Now? is Dillon’s first London solo exhibition. This emotional and powerful body of work charts a course through the relationship between the artist and his brother Steve Dillon, who died five years ago in New York. 

A year after he died I went and stayed in the same hotel, and the same room that he died in. Some of the paintings are directly about that experience. My more attachment based, unconscious, right hemisphere brain was literally still looking for him. And I had to go through the rather disappointing process of the hotel room being…. just a hotel room, and not some portal to another dimension.”

Steve Dillon was himself a successful comic-book artist best known for ‘Preacher’, a long running series, recently adapted for television.

The paintings span a range of psychological landscapes, Kubrickian liminal spaces, and on a darker Pop Art tangent, giant recreations of specific comic-book panels that reference the artist personally.

These paintings have definitely been influenced by his career in the film industry as a Costume Designer, Storyboard and Concept Artist, as well as the narrative discipline of writing and drawing his award winning graphic novel ‘The Nao of Brown’.
