Dion Pickering Zwirner
Visual Arts: Mixed Media
Because she expresses her response to the world primarily in visual terms, Dion has chosen to use the landscape as a container for the ideas that she wants to convey. Recognizable images do not interest her; She is more interested in drawing on memories evoked by landscape.
In her paintings and works on paper she is continuing her search to convey seen or felt experiences into an independent realm of painted gestures. By fracturing volumes and fragmenting space she hopes to separate natural elements from their remembered surroundings, allowing for intuition to replace logic. Dion wants to stay at the edge of the visible - seeking a negotiation between chance and calculation.
