John Dierdorf’s style has always been a process. He first picked up a paintbrush in college while studying fine arts and discovered the limitations of realism. He felt restrained. “If I wanted to take a picture, I’d take a picture.” Inspired by Monet, Pissarro, and other Impressionists, he began developing his own expressions.
His style has recently taken a more nuanced tone, shifting further from realism. The goal is to provide “a two-fold impression” of his subject matter. Thin layers and bright colors give the viewer one impression while standing back, and then another once the viewer approaches it closer. John’s showcase will feel more like a garden than a gallery this July!
Join us for John's public reception on Friday, July 22nd in the Stephenson House.
