GERD DAGNE

From Here to There
March 8 - March 29, 2016
Reception: Thursday March 10, 2016 6-8 PM

The surrealist and highly stylized paintings of artist Gerd Dagne are as fascinating as they are compelling. Colorful, tension-riddled scenes, and a strong use of line and form are all hallmarks of Dagne’s unique style, which is reflective of the influences of the sixties Pop culture, seventies psychedelic art, and his strong connection to consumer branding. Dagne describes his work as a release of the unconscious, a delving deep into the inner world to cultivate awareness and understanding of the experience of the self and of the human race as a whole.

“My paintings originate from the seeds of self-examination, and an attempt to release the truths I discover about myself in the process,” Dagne says of his work. Thus, the consistent themes of internal conflict, the inevitable conflict that accompanies social interaction, and the push-pull of dialectical opposites is not surprising. Throughout Dagne’s body of work, one can find again an exploration of positive versus negative, real versus surreal, and harmony versus discord.

Gerd Dagne currently lives and works in Hillsdale, New Jersey.
