Combining elements of painting, drawing, and printmaking, Dylan Strzynski are able to achieve his goal of capturing the strength and “quality of haunted-ness” of the land. In his artist statement, he writes: “An author like J.G. Ballard can describe blasted out landscapes of broken concrete for page after page until the setting becomes a metaphor for the psychological condition of the characters within the story. I seek to do this with my paintings. […] I have found a way to flatten out and schematize what I see while making the image to appear, superficially, more like an optical illusion than the blueprint that it really is. Human Progress is overrated.”
