Dylan Lind
Dylan Lind

6 - 24 September 2016

Dylan Lind’s work suggests layers of connection and disconnection with his cultural surroundings and one could say, his cultural roots. There is a sense that things aren't easily pigeon holed or identified. With a love of American abstraction (Jasper Johns) and a desire to create his own visual language, Lind makes images that draw on both his family connections and his formal artistic signifiers and motivating influences. 

Lind says “I have a European and Cook Island background and my work sits nervously in between these worlds.” 

Lind’s latest body of work is about lists. The words that appear in the work relate to some of the artist’s favourite songs; when read on paper, for him, they appear as lists. Like long shopping lists. The fun and excitement are in the delivery.

Says Lind, “The words in my paintings, the scribbles and half-images don't take themselves too seriously and they are fairly open to change. Open to clash and collide with one another, to give and take. Open even to being painted away. It is for this reason I try to give them space and gravity so they push and pull and find their place and balance. It's a give and take thing, you know?”
