combines photography with gestural painting in images that explore our relationship to memory, as well as creating tumultuous acrylic and oil paintings laden with impasto.
Capturing photographs of familiar objects and banal scenes that suggest family occasions — an armchair or a picnic table at an unremarkable location — he then disrupts the images by covering them with swaths of visceral, vibrant paint to suggest science-fictional forms or networks.
Dildine’s images weave together the immediacy of the present with the nostalgia of the past, alluding to the human tendency to obsessively contemplate and analyze personal history.Joshua Dildine
( 1984 - ) is an American artist who was born in Mission Viejo, California. Dildine is best known for his works that combine post-modern painterly abstraction with family photographs.
