"My art is visual but the mental information I use to create this work comes from a kinesthetic sense about the work, rather than a visual or analysis of it."
Born in 1992, Colorado-based artist Dylan Gebbia-Richards brings a unique perspective to his transcendent works, where the organic is seamlessly appropriated by the artificial. Drawing inspiration from fractals, or the "expanding symmetry" observed in nature's patterns – from river deltas to the microscopic arrangement of veins within our bodies – Dylan creates monumental organic wax sculptures that pay homage to these captivating patterns. His technicolor palette invites viewers into a synthetic environment that simultaneously delights, disorients, and immerses them in a sensory experience. Dylan envisions his studio as an organic microclimate, where he orchestrates but ultimately relinquishes control over the reactions that produce the intricate patterns in his artworks.
Gebbia-Richards' paintings harmoniously blend rich colors and densely constructed textures. Employing an innovative process using wax, pigment, and resin, he reimagines our perception of nature. His works evoke various natural phenomena such as mountain ranges, molten rock from erupting volcanoes, vibrant coral reefs, and cavernous rock formations. Gebbia-Richards' paintings seemingly leap off the canvas, transporting viewers to a dimension both familiar and otherworldly.
Though his paintings range in size, they each deliver an unparalleled experience. Their undulating forms, prismatic pigments, and protruding textures captivate the senses, inviting viewers on a memorable journey. As Dylan Gebbia-Richards continues to explore the intricate relationship between nature and the artificial, his innovative creations offer a fresh and engaging perspective for art collectors and enthusiasts alike. By fusing organic and synthetic elements in his work, Gebbia-Richards invites a deeper exploration into the interplay between the natural world and human innovation. As his artistic practice evolves, Dylan Gebbia-Richards' extraordinary creations will undoubtedly continue to leave a lasting impact on the international art scene, offering a distinctive and immersive experience that captivates audiences and transports them on a sensory adventure.
