Dylan Glynn, Utopia

Dylan Glynn: After Order, After Disorder

On view January 27 - March 12, 2017
Opening Reception on Friday, January 27th, 6-8 p.m.
Hawn Gallery, Hamon Arts Library  

After Order, After Disorder features animated shorts, digital prints, paintings, and works on paper by Toronto-based artist Dylan Glynn. Glynn, whose practice is rooted in formal life drawing, has developed an ethereal style that captures a fantastical naiveté. Emotive and rich in narration, this body of work explores Glynn’s optimistic projections for the future, in which he envisions humanity’s return to a harmonious relationship with nature. In this exhibition, Glynn’s works are presented alongside historical photographs from DeGolyer Library’s special collections that echo the nuanced relationship between new and traditional media in the artist’s work.
