Current Exhibit: 50 Years of Art
by Dik Muller
September 1 through October 31
50 years of art taking a critical view of social, political and cultural issues” In my work, I deconstruct the boundaries between the conscious and unconscious, the obvious, the American dream, and thoughts that are part of our childhood and adult life. I take inspiration from alternative states of consciousness to create mixed-media works that reconstitute an aspect of “visual experience” we perhaps seldom notice, but all in fact experience. The imagery is thus generated from the neurological hardwiring of our optical system and our brain. Indeed, this interplay between the two & three-dimensional is central to the subject matter: to achieve this effect, the mixed-media works occupy a middle-ground between painting and sculpture.
