DCF 1.0

During the 1990’s I purchased a used clothing store mannequin to use as photo reference for an illustration assignment. I have also used that mannequin for personal photographs.

Alternative Universe 2

Yesterday I started and finished this image ,which I have titled “Alternative Universe”. It is part of a body of art, I call “Inner Space”, that I have been creating for about two years. This image represents energy and movement. A new universe forming.

“Go ON • NO Joy collage art by John Foster Dyess

This is a collage constructed using various scraps of textures created on a black and white copy machine. I tear these textures into ragged edge shapes and glue them on mount board. I make a black and white copy of the torn shape collage  on a copy machine.
I mount that copy on illustration board and then color the mounted copy using liquid acrylic paint.


The go and the on words were torn out of a local newspaper and then burned on the edges. The word joy was created on my computer,printed and then enlarged several times on a copy machine to create the texture within the letters.


This is the final black and white copy which was painted with liquid acrylic paint. The ON and the NO are the same except inverted . These words created a frame that contain the Go and the Joy words. The final size is 11″ wide x 17″ high





This painting from life was painted in 1989.It was painted in oil on canvas.It is 16″wide x 19.5″ high. I am selling this painting for $80.00, plus shipping. Contact me at
