Neil Peter Dyck: Recent Paintings and Drawings
Recent ink drawings created on a trip within BC during the pandemic are now the subject of Neil Peter Dyck’s upcoming exhibition at the Fort Gallery. A combination of cabin fever, imagination and resourcefulness, Dyck turned to ink and paper when he didn’t have a means to keep up a fully transportable studio while away.
“When I started with these ink drawings, I didn’t have the intention of holding on to them as finished works for a show. I feel fortunate to be able to translate and extend the intuitive language to these drawings. They represent the actual locations where I’ve spent time, the fictional places, and those in between”, stated Dyck. His dreamlike, fragmented compositions are the result of a process of augmenting, reducing and concealing abstract forms, a multi-layered execution that simultaneously exposes an expressive freedom and calculated restraint. The exhibition also includes a selection of Dyck’s earlier paintings to place the ink drawings into the context of his body of work.
