My wife Carolyn and I are having a joint show on Thursday March 31 at “The Gallery of Contemporary Art at St.Louis Community College -Wildwood. Below is the statement about our show.
Husband and wife artists, John and Carolyn Dyess share their home studio but do a variety of types of work and creative projects.
John is a traditional illustrator by career but does personal work in painting, photography, collage and digital media.
This show features his photography taken in New York City, digitally manipulated and abstracted, printed on large stretched canvas and then painted.
Carolyn is graphic designer, with a background in print design, but has been working in fiber and fabric over the last few years. Creating what she calls, “fabric arrangements or ‘fabrications’ ”. Some pieces are along the lines of small art quilts, some have dimensional, stuffed, trapunto- like areas, and some are stuffed and wired shapes arranged in a container or wall sconce.
