People who have saved this event:


Taymour Grahne Gallery is pleased to present Natural Memory, a solo exhibition of recent work by Iowa City-based artist John Dilg.


The show’s imagery derives from an ongoing meditation on Dilg’s relationship to the land and its ability to conjure vivid, visual memories. These paintings and works on paper are also codified summaries of locality and place. In terms of the fragility the contemporary land possesses, the artist’s concern acts to foster the views of regret and the sense of latent danger that often occur in his paintings.

These are not landscape paintings, rather, they are intended as records of a tendency to view and remember (in an abstract, metaphoric language) Dilg’s relationship with the land. The artist believes that one’s memory of the land is a reservoir of abstraction; it functions as a personal framework in service to both survival and the kind of advantageous “beauty” found in natural encounters.
