About Waterbag Sculpture:

Our vision has the greatest effect on our understanding of the world.  Through my artwork, I create scenarios in which the viewer must question their capacity to navigate between reality and illusion. My curiosity of perception is driven by the fact that I am red-green colorblind. Having a deficit in my color vision is an alternative way of seeing. Inspired by Trompe L’oeil, H2O/SiO2 is entirely hot sculpted glass, which appear as plastic bags of water. The trapped movement of the rising bubbles and the gesture of the forms convince the eye that the sculptures are just as they seem. What is fascinating is that our desires often override our true perception of reality and you believe what you think is visible as the truth.

 

About Inverted Logic Sculpture

Inverted Logic is composed of re-purposed camera and condenser lens. Subverting their original purpose of capturing the world as it is, now they confuse and disorient their environment. In a constant state of flux, this installation is constantly shifting due to the movements of the eye and the body.  As viewers move about the space the graphics of the decals invert, shift and stretch challenging the perceptions of the viewer. This artwork provides an opportunity to explore a new perception of the environment and inspire a sense of wonder.

 

About Mach 2 Sculpture

Mach 2 was first born out of the desire to celebrate the properties of clear glass. As with many of Dylan’s artworks, the idea begins with a desire to applaud a physical property, in this case, it was the motivation to confuse light. Using hand pulled rods of glass, Dylan cuts and polishes each piece and meticulously joins and arranges them into position. The orientation of each piece is meant to capture and obscure a small piece of its environment. Collectively, the glass rods create a dynamic visual field distorting and re-configuring its moment in space and time. Since this sculpture absorbs and reflects its surroundings, every passerby and shift in lighting affects the artwork, creating an ever-changing visual symphony of light and color.
