Regional Artist: Dirk Bach
This collection of acrylic paintings and colored pencil drawings focuses on figurative realism with the depiction of Mavis – a black and white Terrier mix from New York – in a variety of situations: as Radha seduced by Krishna (as a blue motorcycle), as a canine illuminated by Shiva, posing on rugs, with figures from Japanese prints, African sculptures, and more.
All work in this exhibition was created in Bach’s Easton studio.
The exhibition opening will be held on November 22, 2019 from 6 - 8 p.m.
About the Artist
Dirk Bach is an artist-scholar. His story-filled art has ranged from calligraphic abstractions, to cultural iconography, to brilliantly colored still lives and personal visions cast against intricate patterns of grass, woven baskets, and oriental carpets. He has worked in almost every drawing and painting medium. He has been a professor of design and art history, an entertaining pianist, and an insatiable reader of books.
